You wrote the patch (in "<mode bubulle_is_very_dumb>") based on instructions
from Steve.

It's really strange that we still need this patch (this kind of thing should
be fixed upstream). But given that we are very close to the freeze (and to
samba4), it doesn't seem like a good idea to start changing it. So I just
added some basic info.

I expect that this patch will go away for wheeze+1 (if not, we should document
more clearly why we need a debian-specific patch for this).
