I've set up a samba 3.0 (cvs 2002-12-27) domain with LDAP backend and
about 800 users.

I have some win95/98 clients and want to use user level access control.
But if I try to fetch the list of users in the add-share dialog, windows
says "You can not view the user list at this time. Please try again

I've just checked this with samba 2.2.7a too and it didn't worked

Did I miss something or is this feature not yet implemented?

PS: I wish you all a happy new year!

my smb.conf:
workgroup = BRGS
netbios name = ALDEBARAN
server string = PDC (samba %v)
encrypt passwords = Yes
security = user
log level = 2
syslog = 0
max log size = 50000
