I just talked to Günter on IRC. He says he will either reopen 4090 or open a
new bug. The remaining issues do not affect me, as I use only RO OS/2 shares,
and known open timestamp issues only affect RW shares, both legacy LANMAN,
and WINNT & WINXP. He says much is already fixed in Jeff Layton's tree that
hasn't yet been merged into Samba git.

This means my upthread comment "there is NO usable connectivity with OS/2" is
incorrect, and the current thread subject is misleading. There is
connectivity, but it only works entirely correctly if not using RW OS/2 shares.
