Package: samba
Version: all versions

Reported by samba community. 
Upstream report is : https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13456 

Debian change the usershared max shares from 0 (disabled) to 100 but forgot the man page. 

But im question this also because of the following. 

With the user share path enabled: usershare path = /var/lib/samba/usershares 
And usershared max shares = 100 

You get messages in your logs which only clotters the logs. 

Fix options are; 
-Revert the usershared max shared back to 0 and not need to fix the man page.
-Set usershare path = (empty) which also disables the usershares and prevents log clottering. 

Seen on wheezy jessie stretch and up.
