Thanks for the compliment.

That's the most useful thing :-). Being honest, it was
a previous email like yours that pointed out the bug
in the Samba2 code that got it fixed. I'm just sorry
we didn't post out a generic advisory on this for 1.9.18p10.

Please keep on complaining and posting fixes. It's 
*extremely* useful and remember, it's not "the Samba
Team's software" - it belongs to the people who use it !
(and we get used to the complaints :-).

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
