I found there were a number of things in this paper that should be
updated for 3.0, or are less than accurate.

The first is the issue of 'session users'.  How have you found that
variable impacting on operations?  As far as I know, it's use is only to
support 'security=share', and apart from some noise in the logs, it
should have no impact on terminal server operations.

(Then again, I've been in 3.0 land for a long time, and in 2.2 it can
get scary...)

Also all the 'list' parameters in Samba 3.0 are now handled as real
lists, so do not suffer from the 1024 character limit.

In environments where WINS may be controlled, I would also suggest the
use of static wins entries, or 'dns proxy' and multiple CNAME records
for the terminal server.
