I don't know. I suspect it's just against a Windows server, and possibly
just 2000 and XP (maybe 2003). I've only seen it when accessing my Windows
XP machine, and all the reports I googled involved Windows based shares. I
run the one Linux web server which only uses the client to serve files which
reside on my XP box.
