Yep, I had a server string in there for a week already.  And did a reload,
but nothing changed.  It's been showing "Samba 3.0.7" in the window title
bars for ages even though I've been on 3.0.14a for a while.

So do I completely restart all smbd processes, or do I have to restart every
windows box before the server string (windows title bar) changes?
