Unfortunately, the process of running the app begins with a compiled
executable that call all the relevant scripts, and I have not figured out

single script that will create the error and will post it when I do.

Samba 2.2.5 is the latest production version, 2.2.6 is being prepared
for release.

Can you give us the scripts so we can try and reproduce against
the latest CVS code.
