Thanks a lot for investigating this. I vaguely remember coming on that
issue during my last samba bugs jihad last year..:-)

I don't know if you started a general bug triage on samba bugs, Jim,
but that would definitely be welcomed by the packaging team....even if
this is partial, that would be welcomed.

All this seem to anyway suggest that the bug is reassigned to the
squid package, doesn't it?
