Sorry for the break in the threading.

I was forced to goto version 3.0.11 of samba. The added abilities were
needed at this location, also with the printing fixes as well.

So, Samba has fixed Bug #1580 (and yes it did fix it, THANKS Jerry!)

And your prelim-patch for clitar.c also passed the mustard quite well...

And NOW you fix the resulting problem I was having as I brought up the
Samba Server.  wbinfo gave me only local account and groups, 1 sequence
number that was stale and basically was non-functional. I am just glad I
happen to browse by the problem that this patch fixes...

And, as of right now... it is in production, mainly because of the
consequence of the features of 3.0.11.

I wish to thank, all of you on the Samba Team, those of you listed on
the contacts page:

    * Jeremy Allison		* Andrew Tridgell
    * John Terpstra		* Chris Hertel
    * John Blair		* Gerald (Jerry) Carter
    * Michael Warfield		* Brian Roberson
    * Jean Francois Micouleau	* Simo Sorce
    * Andrew Bartlett		* Jelmer Vernooij
    * Richard Sharpe		* Stefan Metzmacher
    * Martin Pool		* Herb Lewis
    * Dan Shearer		* David Fenwick
    * Volker Lendecke		* Tim Potter
    * David Bannon		* Steve French
    * Jim McDonough		* Alexander Bokovoy
    * Rafal Szczesniak		* Marc Kaplan
    * Paul Green		* Deryck Hodge
    * Vance Lankhaar		* Guenther Deschner

To each of you, you have made my life simpler by replacing a POS product
that should never have been this popular.

I am going to share my good fortune (not that it'll be much... but hey
some os better than none) soon enough... with quite a few FOSS Projects
that I convert companies and people to.

The place I work, is nearing a point where I'll be able to run
everything on Linux, using Native apps or using bridge apps like
Wine/wine Derivatives.

Once again: THANKS^3!
