[Samba] Shares of Logged Out Users Still Visible By Next User

   comment = Home Directory
   browseable = no
   read only = no
   create mode = 0775
   directory mask = 0775
   csc policy = disable

I'm finding it happens if the previous process hasn't terminated.  
Ususally that's IPC$.
I have deadtime = 3 to get rid of them pretty fast, but rapidly logging 
in has that behavior.
I tested samba3_release svn tonight, but still the same on AIX 5.2, 
security = ads

I thought there was a bug out on this, but I can't find it.  Certainly 
it's been mentioned before.

Regards, Doug
