Indeed, when I saw the patch sent by Kai to Debian bug #500129, I was
a little bit scared....:-)

I initially intended to have the patch in Debian lenny but its size
makes me hesitate (the policy for lenny as of now is not as strict as
the polocy to update Debian stable....but, still, we're quite close
to the release and our release managers ask all Debian maintainers to
be very careful about patches fixing no release-crtical bugs.

I think that, for Debian, I'll finally balance to include the patch,
putting confidence in the work of two Samba Team
developers...:-)...but that will not be an update for a stable version
and I would not push it if it was for Debian stable.

I suspect that Ubuntu's policy is about the same and, as Kai
mentioned, it would be perfectly understandable if the patch is not
