Interesting. I have seen that before and since it isn't documented in 
the smb.conf man page thought it was a bogus value. Turns out that it 
possibly is valid and potentially useful.
Although the context I've seen it in is as a second value:
"passdb backend = tdbsam guest", which use isn't quite clear. The Debian 
setups seem to add this value to the default smb.conf.

This value should be documented and explained in the smb.conf man page.
