Description Jens Benecke 2005-03-29 01:52:19 UTC
in many cases the smb.conf manpage has two errors regarding the ".fi" 
parameter, which results in incorrect parsing. Here's a patch:

 Note that it is particularly important not to allow write access to the

secure environment, as this would allow the batch files to be arbitrarily 
modified and security to be breached\&.

argh.. I hate copy&paste. forget the "in many cases" part. :-)  
Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2005-03-29 05:52:43 UTC
please send patches against either the xml source of 
the docbook toolchain.  We can't use patches against the 
actual man page.

This problem has been fixed for some time. Sorry, I forgot to close the bug report.
