Samba 2.0.2 (and 2.0.0) truncates/fills with NULL bytes

Just in case anyone if worried about the report about 
2.0.2 filling a file with null bytes, I've managed to
track down the problem to an NT redirector bug when
a file created by a Mac (ie. has a resource + data fork),
stored on an NTFS partition using the NT Appleshare file
services is copied to a Samba share when "nt smb support"
is set to true.

This is *not* a generic file corruption bug (in fact it's
damn hard to reproduce, even when you're trying to :-).

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