Just following this thread I did some digging and I think readlink is 
working as written. :-)


I think we either need to add AIX to the ifdef or properly handle the 
ERANGE. The former looks easier. ;-)

At any rate, Joshua, are you using the 32- or 64-bit version of 3.3.7? I 
have a 32-bit patched smbd replacement you can test with the original 
patch Volker suggested. I can make a 64-bit if you need that. Interested?
