[Samba] Server variable %L expansion

I have been successfully using the technique of creating "virtual
servers" via the method outlined below in my smb.conf file.



        netbios name = %h 

        workgroup = WORKGROUP 

        netbios aliases = cifs1 cifs2

        include = /etc/samba/smb.conf.%L


Now under Red Hat ES release 4 with kernel "2.6.9-11.EL" and Samba
version "samba-3.0.10-1.4E" the variable expansion of %L for 

either /etc/samba/smb.conf.cifs[1,2]  does not seem to work anymore. 


Anyone have any thoughts on this?


Hardcoding the name works, but it's not optimal for my environment.
