Quoting Jeff Sheldon (jsheldon at math.lsu.edu):
> Package: samba
> Version: 2:3.3.2-1
> Severity: critical
> Tags: patch
> Justification: causes serious data loss
> When using roaming profiles with Samba configured as a domain controller, 
> Samba bug #6186 can cause data loss if an attempt is made to syncronize a 
> roaming profile that includes a file that is marked read-only.
> This bug causes our users' roaming profiles to fail a complete sync at
> logoff once a file mapped as read-only tries to overwrite a previously
> declared read-only file on the Samba server.
> A patch is provided with the Samba bug report. 

Marking the bug as forwarded. I'll think deeper to decide whether
there is enough value added by including that patch in Debian's 3.3.2
while it is quite certain that it will be in 3.3.3.

Steve (put your Ubuntu hat on), maybe that would help not having this
bug in jaunty as I think that you guys are freezing things to prepare
the release, right?
