Even well-phrased questions with debugging output and dumps frequently
stay unanswered. I still cannot print with smbprint to our Domain
Server, and no help here. The bugzilla entry (1481) has gone
unanswered since June 2004 (that's seven months).

Samba has gone the way of many successful projects: The principal
developers are busy with writing books and talking at conferences
while the mailing lists get flooded with clueless newbie requests.
Nobody knowledgeable finds the time to answer requests at all.
