Okay, that makes sense. Filip, Darrell, will you subscribe to this 
lists? I could, too, but I guess as a non-developer I can't do much with 
this... :-)

Filip already told he can set up two test servers, so that should work. 
Currently, I have one production machine which I can test new releases 
of the module on in the evening (it's in a school, thus no users after 6 
or 7 pm). Will see if I can re-activate two old machines in-house and 
test there as well.

Filip, if you want, you can give me RDP and SSH access so I can debug on 
your machines as well. But that's not necessary (RDP is insecure).

Thanks for that offer, Jerry! I really appreciate all your (all Samba 
developers) work in this matter! I know you don't really want this 
module as it's not so widely used, so I appreciate your support even 
more! Thanks! :-)

Could you please ping the whole pdbsql "list" when something new 
happens? (Or, at least, write to me as well.)
