Not exactly this is a w2k8 bug, but this is asking a version of samba
that's prior to w2k8 to work properly with it.

Seeing the number of Samba developers around who are actively working
on w2k8 stuff, I think we can quite safely assume that hiccups with
w2k8 *will* happen in any samba release as of now.

Well, from Brian explanations, there is no chance that someone ever
tries to reproduce the bug so I really fail to see what benefit we
have in keeping it...

I think we shouldn't really deal with bugs involving w2k8 until
upstream has claimed for "full" supprot.
