I should have been more clear .. the last message was generally directed
at those suggesting that I should just upgrade the old samba installs
instead of isolating the change / making a potential work around (or
fix, if it is deemed as such) in the new code.  I will gladly assist in
isolating where the problem was introduced, and I am sure that no change
/ breakage was intentional and did not intend to imply that if it
sounded as such.

I will post more information as it becomes available, thanks again.
