I've upgraded to version 3.4, but I'm still having problems. The testparm
command gives the following output:
barrowhillfarm:~ # testparm /etc/samba/smb.conf
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf

Processing section "[profiles]"

Why are those lock, state, cache and pid directory files missing? I can't
believe I'm supposed to create them myself ;) The testparm command was run as
root, so it can't be a permissions problem.
Any more suggestions, please?
