[Samba] Upgrade from 3.0.2 --> 3.0.7

I'm contemplating the upgrade for my production network from (Red Hat
Enterprises') version 3.0.2 to 3.0.7 (which is the latest from Red Hat).

So I start to peruse the changelog and I see this:

"Syntax errors in the OpenLDAP schema file (samba.schema)."

as one of 4 bullet items at the top of the Samba 3.0.7 changelog.  This has
me a bit concerned.  My production environment is based on an LDAP backend
of for Samba and I need to be sure that the upgrade will not toast my setup.

Here are my questions:
1). Can someone give me more detail on the "syntax errors" that were
2). Also, what (if any) effect will I see if I use my existing
schema/directory with the 3.0.7?
3). What's the proper procedure to upgrade the directory so that it *can*
use the updated schema?

I've just started investigating the upgrade so forgive me if these questions
have been answered somewhere else.  Thanks in advance for any help.
