Description John H Terpstra (mail address dead( 2003-06-14 11:59:43 UTC
To reproduce problem set:

include = /etc/samba/smb.conf.%m

Results in log message:

[2003/06/14 11:55:14, 1] param/params.c:Parameter(368)
  params.c:Parameter() - Ignoring badly formed line in configuration file:
include /etc/samba/smb.conf.%m

Also does NOT read parameters.

This means that we can no longer do client specific debugging.

Um, it's supposed to be include = ..., not just include .....

It works fine with the '='.
