So maybe in Samba 3.0.1 this issue will be solved...
Do you know where can I get more information about this patch? I tried
to search the samba-technical list archive but didn't find much.

Any help will be welcome, thanks!

A patch for this issue was proposed to the samba-technical list, but
never applied.
