Patch to add a global option "strict name checking" 

This patch adds a global option 
strict name checking = yes/no  (yes is default)

This allows alias or cnames to be used as long as the entry is in the keytab
file.
It should be simliar to the fix MS offers in
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;281308


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters


Value name: DisableStrictNameChecking
Data type: REG_DWORD
Radix: Decimal
Value: 1

Cleaning up versions.  There was no 3.0.15 so leaving it in bugzilla 
is causing some confusion.  Moving these nuder 3.0.20.
Originally files against 3.0.15preX.
