Thanks for your input, Robert.

The command that's run in samba-common-bin's postinst script is:

update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/net net /usr/bin/net.samba3 10 \
        --slave /usr/share/man/man8/net.8.gz net.8.gz /usr/share/man/man8/net.samba3.8.gz

It's surprising to hear that the "net" alternative wasn't properly
registered after installing samba-common-bin. More details about this
would be in any case appreciated. And a reproducible test case is
certainly worth a bug report in Debian against samba-common-bin.
