Reading through theses lists of problems every day and because of my own 
experiences, I always wonder why something works for one system and not 
the other.  I can't help but believe it's the vast number of 
permutations possible (1) within Samba and (2) between Samba and all the 
OS's on which it works.  With all the variations possible, it is a true 
credit to the developers that it works as well as it does.  I compliment 
them all.
