[Samba] Is 2.2.3/4 as reliable as 2.0.10?

No problems here with 2.2.3a.  I'm getting ready to deploy 2.2.4, so I can't
comment on it, but I don't expect any trouble.  There were some winbindd
instabilities in 2.2.2 and earlier, but they seem to have been cleared up.
By all means try it on a test machine before deploying it in production, but
I've been running it on RedHat 7.0 and 7.1 with no problems.  I'd say Samba
has been getting more stable over time, not less.

I've been using 2.0.x on my servers for a couple of years & am a very, very
happy customer (thanks Samba team). There are only 2, albiet small,
annoyances. 1) Any account administration results in changes having to be
made on both the NT domain & linux server. 2) I can't do permissions for a
"group of groups" on the linux server. It seems that winbind might be able
to resolve the 1st issue certainly, and possibly the 2nd by letting Samba
use the NT domain groups. However, I have no desire to introduce any hint of
instability only to save myself a little extra admin. I'm especially
interested in hearing from anyone running on RedHat 7.1 with your
experiences with the 2.2.3 & up versions of Samba. TIA
