Absolutely! It's still working now.

I have these.

3.6 works without these, why shouldn't 4.2?
AFAIK, these can help performance, but with 3 PCs and 5 users they 
should practically make no difference.
BTW, in my case "machines" is "computers".

This is the default, so it should make no difference.

"ldap://localhost" is the default (as per "man smb.conf"), so this 
should be equivalent to what I have.

In any case, I tried with those lines and they don't make any difference 
either with 3.6 (still working) and 4.2 (still NOT working).
