With no response of the list since my last mail, I tried to change this 
parameter to False on a test server, but it didn't solved my problem 
(described in my previous mail).

I browsed (for hours) the source code at http://samba.org/doxygen/samba/, but 
I still can't find where my problem is coming from, and how I can solve it.

If someone have an idea about a method I can try to locate the buggy function, 
I would appreciate a lot.

Thanks in advance
