Unfortunately I am not familiar enough with the surrounding context to
write something better.

FWIW the smb.conf that prompted this report does not contain a 'log
level' setting.

	# Run “testparm” to check for syntax erros.

	   workgroup = XXXXX
	   netbios name = XXXXX
	   server string = XXXXX
	   security = user
	   encrypt passwords = true
	   passdb backend = tdbsam
	   log file = /var/log/samba/log.machine
	   max log size = 1000
	   syslog = 0
	   panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
	   usershare max shares = 100
	#   printing = cups

	  comment = XXXXX
	  read only = no
	  path = XXXXX
	  guest ok = no
	  username = XXXXX
	  valid users = XXXXX
	;   preexec = /bin/mount XXXXXX
	;   postexec = /bin/umount XXXXX

That's it (25 lines).  smb.conf.ucf-dist does not seem to mention a
log level, either.  Maybe I have missed some other config file or that
is the bug?
