CVS version works as expected - THANK YOU!
As Gene Cohler said: It's software, bugs happen.
Good to know that they get fixed that fast.

Hope you will have some time left to do Version 2.2.3a,
I think it is needed.

Since I've noticed the bug one day before release in the
CVS version and wrote a message to the technical 
mailing list which was not recognized, I'd like to  
know what is the right method to annouce such 
issues (this mailing-list?, personal-e-mail 
to Jeremy Allison or/and Gerald Carter or/and 
Andrew Tridgell? someone else?, something else?).

One additonal question: is it necessary to 
activate 'File- und Printer Sharing' on Windows 2000
clients to get the new printer-system working.
I had some strange log-entries with 2.2.2 after 
applications crashes on the clients which I 
described in:
but did not get a response to this.
The log-messages and application crahes gone 
away after activating F&P-Sharing on the 
W2000SP2 clients again. Do the Spool RPCs
depend on the F&P-Sharing?
I'd like to disable again for security reasons.
I do not dare to deactivate now that 2.2.3 running
without a response from someone who knows
more about this than me, since some users
lost several hours of work the last time the
problem happened and their MS-Word crashed.

Again, thank you.
