I am trying to use the "shared mem size" parameter in Samba 2.0.4b, but
the size reported by smbstatus does not match the value I am using.

Without the parameter, the default is 1MB, and the size reported by
smbstatus is indeed 1048576.  However, when I set the value of "shared
mem size" to 5242880 (5MB), smbstatus says 879608.  Is smbstatus not
reporting the actual size, or is this accurate and the shared memory
size has actually been reduced instead of increased?
