Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kcontrol

When i invoke kcontrol or Ubuntus "Systemsteuerung" and edit my samba-
shares using the expert-button in "Freigaben" (shares) I get this option
written into smb.conf:

msdfs proxy = no

sounds good but PREVENTS 100% that anybody from another machine will
_find_ my share. One could set up a proxy with the NAME "no" but I have
not tried that.

Deleting the line via editing smb.conf directly works as exptected (->
new share up and running).

This is also a bug in Debian etch/experimental 3.5.6
