Ouch, sorry, that was my fault. Actually, I noted down this "problem" 
when using a previous Samba version (2.2.7, I think), and didn't check 
it again after upgrading to 2.2.8a, which happened more or less 
simultaneously with my post here. I really didn't expect you were taking 
care of such small details. :)

So, from a quick test I just did at home (can't access the office now), 
I can confirm that the 3rd "OK" is now gone, as you are telling.

Sorry for not having been correct in reporting, but this was not meant 
to be as a real bug report, as I mentioned, and I took it a bit too 
lightly. ;)

Sure, I did it only when doing some maintenance operations, while no 
clients were connected (or at home when playing around).
