I hate to see people encouraged to apply unnecessary fixes that were
suggested to work around issues that were created as temporary solutions
to the moving target of Windows.

requiresignorseal / signsecurechannel issues have long since been fixed
in Samba - no need for those registry changes - this was a Samba 2.x

I am pretty certain that the 'CompatibleRUPSecurity' registry patch
isn't needed any longer as well, I think that was an issue created from
original release of WinXP SP1

The 'ExcludeProfileDirs' - those folders should have been excluded
