Yes, it was in the global area. I pulled it out.  The person who set up
Samba on our network years ago probably put it in there while trying to get
it to work. He even commented the setting sith something that didn't make
sense at all...  something like "make the service hidden".

Probably just a case of assuming a flag did somethign else...
