Thanks for the updates.  Jerome's patch has also been
integrated into 3.0.11pre2.

I hope so.  We're getting close to the final 3.10.11 release
and so far things look good.

| smbd/server.c

smbd/lanman.c used the printing interface in some for or another
and had to be updated.

the change in loadparm was to default 'lpq cache time' to
30 seconds instead of 10.

the change to smbd/server.c was to not launch the background
LPQ daemon when you run 'smbd -i'

the fix in smbd/reply.c and smbd/negprot.c was to fix the
'tdb fetch failed' error messages.

cheers, jerry
