Upgraded to v2.2.1a, now netlogon.bat doesn't run

I've just upgraded from Samba v2.0.10 to v2.2.1a and find that my netlogon 
script isn't run when logging into Win98.

Cranking up the Samba debug setting, I see that it is queried for 
"netlogon.COM".  Nothing new there.  What is new is that the damned thing 
no longer looks for "netlogon.EXE'', then 'netlogon.BAT'.

Relevent snippets fron smb.conf:

   domain logons = yes
   logon script = netlogon
   logon path = /home/samba/netlogon

   comment = Network Logon Service
   path = /home/samba/netlogon
   guest ok = Yes
   browseable = No

And, finally, the contents of my netlogon directory:

[# ll /home/samba/netlogon/
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root root       9 Sep 16  2000 NETLOGON.BAT -> netscript
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root root       9 Sep 16  2000 NETLOGON.CMD -> netscript
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root root     894 Oct 12 15:02 netscript
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root root     702 Sep 27 12:38 netscript.old
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root root   22528 May  1  1997 WINSET.EXE

Anyone know why NETLOGON.BAT is no longer run?
