Hi all,

I have a samba 2.0.9 server acting as a print server for one of our
classrooms. we have recently moved our machines onto dhcp instead of
static ip's. Before I had hosts allow = ip address of about 30 machines.
Now I have to put the full hostname and domain name of the achines so
that it all works. ie hosts allow = machine.domain. 

However samba won't start as it says string overflow by 56 in
safe_strcpy. can anyone suggest a fix to this problem.
