This fix is for the 2048 open file limitation. The effect is that instead of having one virtual circuit 
for the entire WTS (one smbd on the samba server) you get one virtual circuit for each client 
(which mean users in a windows terminal server environment).  And voila!  You have one 
smbd for each user connecting to the samba server.

I have deleted the source directory so I cant point you to the samba doc-file for this.  Wouldnt 
be much problem for you to find it... yourself... if you have the source-directory intact.
