Package: samba
Version: 2:3.5.9~dfsg-1
Severity: normal

Since the update to 2:3.5.9~dfsg-1 smbd now spams the log with messages

    Could not find child X -- ignoring

This is a known problem which upstream has worked around by altering the log
level for these messages:


Could you please apply the upstream patch to the Debian built version?
