Description Bryan Chua 2005-01-02 02:46:37 UTC
OK, so maybe what I am doing is very odd.  In the older versions of Samba, I
used to define file smb.conf that was very  minimal:

 include .../smb.conf.global
 config file .../smb.conf.%U

 guest ok = yes
 read only = yes

in the smb.conf.users:
 include .../smb.conf.global


 read only = no


In newer versions this still *sort of* works, but the homes share does not show
up from the config file.  I believe that the problem is located in

If I define the [homes] share in smb.conf.base then it works correctly.
If I define the [homes] share in smb.conf.users as browsable = yes then it shows
up as "homes"
The code in do_section looks like it will blindly add sections without trapping
the special names HOMES_NAME.  I believe that somewhere there should be a call
to smbd/service.c:find_service(), but I am not sure where it should be.  I
suspect this bug exists for "printers" as well.

This should be fixed in 3.0.11.  There was an issue with 
variable expansion in include files that I think will 
correct this.  Please test and reopen if necessary,

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
