Howdy. This is my first time to report a bug, so please bear with me. I am
using Samba 3.0.3-5 which came with my Fedora Core 2 release. The clients are
Windows XP professional. When the "Computer Description" field is filled out,
and there is an "'" (apostrophe) in the field, the offending computer does not
show up in the Computer list in "Microsoft Windows Network" -> "Workgroup".
If the offending apostrophe "'" is removed, then the computer shows up.
"Computer Description" = "Fred's Computer" -> Does NOT show up in the list
"Computer Description" = "Freds Computer" -> Does show up in the list

originally reported against 3.0.3pre2. Moving back to version to 3.0.2a
to remove preX and rcX versions.
