I've been having a few problems with samba-2.2.8pre2-1 --with-winbind

Rh 7.2, 2.4.9-38 on s/390, glibc-2.2.4-31

rpcclient segfaults on enumdrivers 3... I hadn't tried it with earlier
versions of samba, but the man pages indicate enumdrivers 1, 2, and 3
are supported.  If you'd like to see a -d 10 or -d 100, or the
/var/log/messages dump, just let me know.

Jerry, don't worry about the copy devmode thing, I went ahead and did
something in VBA based on
http://pubs.logicalexpressions.com/Pub0009/LPMArticle.asp?ID=116 which
is goofy but good enough for my purposes.

Another problem, for some drivers I've gotten "Printer settings could
not be saved."  I've effectively started from scratch, removed nt*.tdb
and printing.tdb, removing files from print$ path, and restarted samba.
Most drivers work fine, but some... when I click on apply, I get a crit
msgbox with "Printer settings could not be saved."  The files uploaded
fine, I am connected as a printer admin, etc, and there's no further
information like Access Denied, or Operation could not be completed, or
anything like that that google has turned up.  If I get out of that
window, under printers I can see that the correct model is associated
with the printer share, but right-clicking on it brings up the same,
device settings cannot be displayed... do you want to install a driver
[no] msgbox.  While this driver has always been problematic, I believe
with earlier versions of samba it would get in a loop where it would
open and close each driver file on the samba server repeatedly.  I was
hoping I could remedy that by copying the devmode from a locally
installed printer at some point during the install, and while the copy
(with SetPrinter or DocumentProperties) did not return any errors, samba
still reports that device settings cannot be displayed, etc.

Any ideas?
