Hmmm... I've restored ALL the content of /etc/samba and /var/cache/samba.
Please tell me that there are other places where samba keeps tdbs... Because
otherwise I've restored them all. :-/ Is the printers "registry" different
than the users one? Because the rest of the samba seems to be working domain
auth and like.
