Peter and me discussed this problem during BSP;)

The code is:

samba.postinst line 86ff:

if [ -n "$2" -a -e /etc/samba/smbpasswd \
     -a ! -e /var/lib/samba/passdb.tdb -a "$PDB_MIGRATE" = "true" ] \
   && dpkg --compare-versions "$2" lt 2.99.cvs.20020713-2
        umask 066
        pdbedit -i smbpasswd -e tdbsam
        rm /etc/samba/smbpasswd
        umask 022

This is only for updates from versions before 3 (woody 2.2.x to sarge
3.0.14a). This doesn't happen from sarge to etch because we will upgrade
vom 3.0.14a to 3.0.23|4.
So the tag "sarge" is correct and we don't have to work on this for
There will be no work done to fix this because nearly all user already
AFAIK this bug will be left open until etch is released, then this sarge
bug will be closed.

Steve, Christian do you agree with this, or should we change the
severity, or close it , or do something else?
