  I'm quite interested in this issue. I need to run qemu with the -smb with 
creates a private samba shared dir which is expected to be managed by a 
different smbd process.

  I've also taken a look at #247163 and #268010. Last comment on those are 1+ 
year old!.

  I've taken the comment in the qemu faq to rebuild the package without 
the -with-fhs option, but this isn't trivial. Maybe the fhs.patch has 
something which prevents compilation. I've also tried not including fhs.patch 
but I also failed.

  Just in case I did a debuild from the sources as is, and it succeeded.

  Also I transcribe a conversation held at #samba-technical on 

<LinuxCart> well, in general, any comment to this: 
<coffeedude> LinuxCart: #1 I could swallow, but #2 & #3 are not really good 
solutions IMO.
<LinuxCart> and what now, I mean would it be possible to have some feedback to 
this bug: what is the proposed solution?
<LinuxCart> is this bug specific to debian?
<coffeedude> LinuxCart: I don't think debian specific.  But more packaging 
specific.  Like i said, the *.dat files I could se.  But splitting the tdb 
files just gives me a headache.  If someone submitting a decent patch I would 
consider it, but I'm not going to spend the time writing it right now.
<LinuxCart> ok, would you mind I inform debian about that?
<LinuxCart> well, I'm far from knowing details about samba but I don't think 
#1 is a problem at all, as you say it's more packaging specific
<coffeedude> LinuxCart: sure.  If it's a real problem, tell the debian folks 
to ping me.

  As you can see LinuxCart is the ignorant AKA me, and coffeedude is one of 
the samba gurus :D

  Hope this helps anyway.
