No, that is not a bug in Samba. When you ran configure you (eventually) got
a message like this:
warning: running as non-root will disable some tests
One of the tests it disables is the check for trapdoor UID.
There are two solutions for this:
* run configure as root;
* if you're scared of that, configure normally, an then edit
include/config.h and #define HAVE_TRAPDOOR_UID.
Both of these have worked for me in the past, and I have 2.0.4b running on
an AIX 4.1 machine right now.
