Package: samba
Version: 3.0.24-6etch10

While upgrading sarges last samba version 3.0.14a-3sarge11 to etch, it 
somehow converts ntprinters.tdb-file and damages it is content.

You can find after upgrade, that smbd does not start and you have in the 
log file (log.smbd):

[2008/11/11 21:41:34, 0] tdb/tdbutil.c:tdb_log(783)
   tdb(/var/lib/samba/ntprinters.tdb): rec_read bad magic 0x0 at 

It could be restored by copying the original ntprinters.tdb file before 
upgrade. In this case Company has 29 printers installed/drivers.

If you need more exact information, please reply to me.
