Reopen them please - and give Steve the logs he needs to fix
them to your satisfaction.

The Samba server bugs when used with OS/2 clients got fixed
when Guenther Kukkuk worked closely with us to give us all
the reproducible cases we needed (Guenther is now a member
of the Samba Team btw - he does *great* work on this :-).

You need to do the same for the cifsfs vs. OS/2 bugs.
It's not like Steve doesn't care, he was the project
lead for the OS/2 redirector :-) :-).
