Ohh, I have added the patch you emailed to the newsgroup on 24/3/05, in 
this thread, I guess I should back that out again in my custom rpm? Or 
is it a fix that  will make it into 3.0.14 anyway? (maybe I am confusing 
people with my question about my self-rolled samba rpm, where I included 
your newspost as a patch on top of 3.0.13, sorry)
