[Samba] Samba-3.0alpha22 available on samba.org mirrors . . .

I upgraded from 3.0alpha21 to alpha22 using
rpm -Uvh samba-3.0alpha22*.i386.rpm
and can no longer attach to any share.
During the install I saw the message:
"Moving tdb files in /var/lock/samba/*.tdb to /var/cache/samba/*.tdb",
which is odd, since there is no /var/lock/samba directory to move
Now, the smbstatus command produces the message:
"/var/cache/samba/connections.tdb not initialised
This is normal if an SMB client has never connected to your server.
Failed to open byte range locking database
ERROR: Failed to initialise locking database
Can't initialise locking module - exiting"
There is no 'connections.tdb' file in /var/cache/samba, and, since
attempts to browse to the public shares from a pc produce a '\\sambaserver
is not accessible
The network path was not found' error, presumably no client ever will.
Is there some way to initialise the connections.tdb file, or something
else I'm failing to do?
OS is RedHat 7.3, security=server, no changes to smb.conf since alpha21,
was working fine!

> WHATS NEW IN Samba 3.0 alpha22
> 4th March 2003
> This is a pre-release of Samba 3.0. This is NOT a stable release.
> Use at your own risk.
> The purpose of this alpha release is to get wider testing of the major
> new pieces of code in the current Samba 3.0 development tree. We have
> officially ceased development on the 2.2.x release of Samba and are
> concentrating on Samba 3.0. To reduce the time before the final Samba 3.0
> release we need as many people as possible to start testing these alpha
> releases, and hopefully giving us some high quality feedback on what needs
> Note that Samba 3.0 is not feature complete yet. There is a more
> coding we have planned, but unless we get what we have done already more
> widely tested we will have a hard time doing a stable release in a
> reasonable time frame.
> Major new features:
> - -------------------
> - - Active Directory support. This release is able to join a ADS realm
> as a member server and authenticate users using LDAP/kerberos.
> - - Unicode support. Samba will now negotiate UNICODE on the wire and
> internally there is now a much better infrastructure for multi-byte
> and UNICODE character sets.
> - - New authentication system. The internal authentication system has
> been almost completely rewritten. Most of the changes are internal,
> but the new auth system is also very configurable.
> - - new filename mangling system. The filename mangling system has been
> completely rewritten. An internal database now stores mangling maps
> persistently. This needs lots of testing.
> - - new "net" command. A new "net" command has been added. It is
> somewhat similar to the "net" command in windows. Eventually we plan
> to replace a bunch of other utilities (such as smbpasswd) with
> subcommands in "net", at the moment only a few things are
> - - Samba now negotiates NT-style status32 codes on the wire. This
> improves error handling a lot.
> - - better w2k printing support including publishing printer
> attributes in active directory
> - - new loadable RPC modules
> - - new dual-daemon winbindd support for better performance
> - - support for migrating from a Windows NT 4.0 domain
> - - support for establishing trust relationships with Windows NT 4.0
> domain controllers
> Plus lots of other changes!
> Reporting bugs & Development Discussion
> - ---------------------------------------
> Please discuss this release on the samba-technical mailing list or by
> joining the #samba-technical IRC channel on irc.freenode.net.
> If you do report problems then please try to send high quality
> feedback. If you don't provide vital information to help us track down
> the problem then you will probably be ignored.
> Changes in alpha22:
> - -------------------
> Added Parameters
> * client NTLMv2 auth
> * client lanman auth
> * client signing
> * client use spnego
> * max reported print jobs
> * msdfs proxy
> See cvs log for SAMBA_3_0 for complete details. There are many
> smaller numerous changes that would clutter the release notes.
> 1) remove the global_myname string and replace with wrapper function
> 2) create vfs/ and pdb/ subdirectories for library installs
> 3) Fixup of ordered cleanup of get_dc_list()
> 4) Added more autoconf tests for Stratus VOS
> 5) Fixed nasty bug where file writes with start offsets in the
> range 0x80000000 -> 0xFFFFFFFF would fail as they were being cast
> from IVAL (uint32) to SMB_OFF_T (off_t or off64_t, both *signed*
> types). The sign extension would cause the offset to be treated
> as negative.
> 6) Add support to automatically retrieve the dns host name and domain
> name of an AD server
> 7) Add support for PRINTER_INFO_7 and publishing printer attributes
> in active directory
> 8) Fix for 64 bit issues with oplocks and allocation size
> 9) Remove assert(count ==1) for multi-homed PDCs when resolving
> 10) Ensure that change_trust_account_password() always talks to

> 12) Fix rpcclient querygroup command

> 21) Removal of unpopular winbind client environment variable
> 22) Add msdfs proxy functionality; a CIFS share can directly be a
> stand-in for another share, and when clients connect to the first
> share, they will be redirected to the proxied share
> 23) Make Samba compile cleanly with -Wwrite-strings
> 24) Add new timegm() that actually works on solaris
> 25) Add support for running smbd, nmbd, & winbindd under the daemontools

> 43) wrap all cm_get_XX calls and their subsequent requests in a retry loop
> in case we've temporarily lost connection to the DC. Makes winbindd
> more reliable
> 44) Optimize user_ok() and user_in_group() when verifying group membership
> 45) Add NTLMv2 client code (that works) and some SMB signing fixes
> 46) Add caching of PRINTER_INFO_2 structures to open printer handles
> 47) Add 1/3 second delay in OpenPrinter() reply to trigger a LAN/WAN
> optimization in Windows 2000 clients
> 48) Add "WinXP" to the possible values of the %a variable
> 49) Fix to allow blocking lock notification to be done rapidly (no wait
> for smb -> smb lock release). Adds new PENDING_LOCK type to lockdb
> (does not interfere with existing locks)
> 50) Limit the unix domain sockets used by winbindd (also solves FD_SETSIZE
> problem in winbindd to boot !). Adds a "last_access" field to winbindd
> connections, and will close the oldest idle connection once the number
> of open connections goes over WINBINDD_MAX_SIMULTANEOUS_CLIENTS
> (defined in local.h as 200 currently)
> 51) Limit the number of print jobs returned in EnumJobs()
