No, because I run samba-3.0.23c in stead of the RHEL4 Samba 3.0.10
which is broken wrt. workgroup master browsers.  Your recent Samba
versions solve the problems, but I'm sure Redhat won't accept a bug
report when I don't use their Samba code - and they didn't even respond
when several people reported the mentioned bug in RHEL's Samba :-(

If I should report a kernel lock bug to Redhat, how can I explain that
it's Redhat's problem ?
