	With the recent migration to systemd (which launches samba in the
foreground) I started seeing these error messages

% systemctl status smbd.service 
smbd.service - Samba SMB/CIFS server
	  Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/smbd.service; enabled)
	  Active: active (running) since Wed, 2012-12-19 15:51:15 EST; 20h ago
	Main PID: 406 (smbd)
	  CGroup: name=systemd:/system/smbd.service
		  ├─406 /usr/sbin/smbd -F
		  └─420 /usr/sbin/smbd -F

Dec 19 15:51:15 srv0 systemd[1]: Started Samba SMB/CIFS server.
Dec 19 15:51:16 srv0 smbd[406]: [2012/12/19 15:51:16.067963,  0]
Dec 19 15:51:16 srv0 smbd[406]: standard input is
not a socket, assuming -D option

The server runs archlinux 64bit, but these errors are observed on multiple
systems, including fedora (systemd) and ubuntu (upstart) servers.
	Does anyone know the meaning of this error message? In fact "man smbd"
tells that "smbd -F" is the proper way to start a server under a supervisor,
such as systemd, upstart or launchd...

Thanks in advance,
