Many thanks.

Not only did SP1 break Samba, but it also wreaked havoc with our Dell server 
running Dell OpenManage.  That problem was confirmed by Microsoft support 

Now, slightly aside, in the past, I would never add a patch or service pack 
without letting it mellow out in the world for a while.  But something 
overtook me, and I went ahead and added it immediately.  Results - chaos.  
Let that be a lesson to you wacky kids out there :-)
