[Samba] Option 'valid users' disappear in SWAT

It's not a bug, it's a feature.  SWAT assumes that once you've made your 
list of valid users (or invalid users, or etc) that you'll not want to 
change it, so Swat stops presenting those lists under the BASIC set of 
options.  Select ADVANCED (the radio buttons are near (just above or below, 
I don't remember which) the choice of shares on the SHARES main menu button 
(and similarly placed on each of the other main menu buttons), and the much 
longer list of things you can manipulate that appears will include, e.g., 
your "valid users" option.

Out of the argument with ourselves comes poetry, out of the argument with 
others comes politics.
