[Samba] minor BUG? re: smbstatus, 'rlimit max'=xxx -> msg=files on client; not server.

When I run smbstatus, I have the impression it's giving me the status of the
smb server.

But the first thing that pops when I run it was:
rlimit_max: rlimit_max(1024) below minimum Windows limit (16384)

But this isn't really the case -- it's telling me my rlimit_max on the
linux-client I am running smbstatus on, not what 'rlimit max' is set to for
the server. 

Had me confused for a bit -- as my startup scripts have the open file 
params set
to 32K for the hard limit and 16K for the soft limit for smb -- and 
didn't know why
it wasn't reading that...

Until I started playing around with the limit in my shell where I was 
smbstatus....then I realized it was telling me the shell's limit -- not 
the samba
server's limit --

Is this desired behavior?
It seems a bit confusing.

(sw version 3.5.2).
