Well, another anti-bug report.  For curiosity I built a samba/dns and
soon to be mail server for a small office 2 weeks ago... without a
hickup.  In the nite bzip2 does a number on it during the nite. 

It is a 20050227 snap with some of the fixes since then, not including
the one with the smbfs lock problem. 

The installer is nice and very functional.  I prefer the shell script
modification for my own entertainment.
