I have been having some problems with some cross-platform s/w
and Samba. It would seem that bad data is sent if a packet size
which is too large is asked for. I do not exactly understand
this business, but here is a quote from my correspondence with the
s/w author:

> Those results say that I've inadvertantly cured the problem.  Aswell as

Is his diagnosis correct? Has this been fixed in later versions?
