Hi all,

We are using the following smb.conf definition.

logon path = \\somesambaserver\Profiles\%U\Profile\%a

%a maps now to Win2K for Win2K3 R2 SP2 servers.
The mapping has been correct in the pass.

We don't noticed the problem until recently when we replaced a
Win2K terminal server in one of our samba domains.

The fault has been there for at least a year.
I don't know if it's caused by samba (3.0.28) or Win2k3 upgrades (R2 SP2).

Until now the missfeature caused no harm and was therefore unnoticed.
The problem showed up recently when we replaced a Win2K 
terminal server by a Win2K3.

This is not a big problem for us but it should nonetheless be eventually fixed.
