SMBD Runs as root

this is because of the trapdoor behaviour of setuid().
If you do setuid() from root to another user you can't go back.
The user access rights are set correctly inside smbd.
Hope it helps...

Subject: SMBD Runs as root
Since loading 2.0.x of Samba, the SMBD process is always ran as "root" when
users connect. I just compiled Samba 2.0.3 on a AIX 4.2 to fix it
according to the enhancement document. SMBD is still running as "root" on
2.0.3. Does anybody have a work around for this.
