Dear Jeremy

Thank you for caring about this.

I successfully patched the source code. Unfortunately, when I tried to 
compile it, I hit some obstacles. I solved some of them until one came 
that I am unable to surmount, because my skills are not up to what's 
needed. I am a sysadmin, not a programmer...

A former compilation succeeded but it had no LDAP and no Kerberos. After 
installing some packages, LDAP passed but compilation failed with this 

cifs.upcall.c:(.text+0x360): undefined reference to 
cifs.upcall.c:(.text+0x3d3): undefined reference to `smb_krb5_unparse_name'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [bin/cifs.upcall] Error 1

So, for me the best bet is this: are you willing to include these 
patches in the next release of Samba (3.5.7 ?)?

Nevertheless, I thank you for your commitment. I am sure that others 
will greatly benefit from this work right now.
