    Downloaded the patch and installed it. Mandriva 2005LE. (I applied it to 
a fresh source of 3.0.23b because patch kept complaining when I tried to 
apply it over the gwc-1.diffs patched source)

./configure --prefix=/usr --infodir=/usr/share --mandir=/usr/share --with-configdir=/etc/samba 
 --enable-cups --with-privatedir=/etc/samba --with-automount --with-smbmount
make proto
make install
/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb restart

    All went well....

    For my simple non-domain; non-winbind setup using smbpasswd; all looks 
great! Samba works like it should and I can connect.

My setup (from testparm):

        workgroup = RB_LAW
        server string = Samba Server %v
        map to guest = Bad User
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        name resolve order = wins lmhosts bcast
        time server = Yes
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        printcap name = cups
        show add printer wizard = No
        os level = 60
        preferred master = Yes
        dns proxy = No
        wins support = Yes
        hosts allow = 192.168.7., 192.168.8., 127.,

The confirmation:

[root at bonza source]# smbclient -U% -L localhost
Domain=[RB_LAW] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.23c-gwc-2]

Thanks for all your and the team's hard work! Now if Lars will just build 
the 3.0.23c binaries for SuSE, well be in great shape. I still can't figure 
out how to get it to compile with all the options he has in the SuSE spec 
file..... Oh well........
