I've just installed winbind and (which is working well) but the share names
produced for homes are more than 13 characters which causes WIN95 clients to
fail. eg home of PANAVISION+markc, client requests PANAVISION+ma and failure
occurs. Does anyone have a solution as I would like to keep winbind and no
choice over WIN95.
