    Two things that help when sending logs to the samba team. (1) A level 10
debug. Meaning setting "log level = 10" in the global section of smb.conf;
restarting samba; and then trying to connect. This will fill the logs with
as much information as possible. (2) Capturing and sending the actual
network packets between the vista machine and your samba box with either
ethereal or the command line utility tcpdump. If you are not familiar with
ethereal, simply capture the packets with tcpdump.

    From man tcpdump: To print all packets arriving at or departing from
"sundown" and save it in "outfile":

              tcpdump host sundown -w outfile

    Then just send the outfile to the team.

    Keep the faith. Vista will be made to behave sooner as opposed to later.

P.S.-what is your PE in?
