The talloc currently in unstable has insufficiently strict shlibs. I've
committed a fix for that to svn; it would be good to have this fix in lenny,
so that we can bump the versioned build-dep on samba 3.2.
The tdb shared library is not currently used by samba (but it is used by
lots of other stuff, great!). I forget now why we didn't use it, perhaps
that's something to revisit yet for lenny?

That might be one we should file a bug report against samba for, so we can
discuss any issues in a central place and not forget about it.

I've been reviewing the package in svn per Jelmer's request; I hope to be
done today, but a few things take precedence (like getting samba 3.2.0
uploaded to unstable).
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
