The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 5192
Proposed enhancement to smb.conf(5)

From our user:
This is a bit pedantic, but when I was studying the smb.conf file, this
seemed odd, so I went to verify it. It seems like an easy fix to clarify
this to save others the trouble:
The comment for max log size says "Kb". It should say "KiB" or at least
"KB", as it's in bytes, not bits. I'm attaching a patch which shows the
change. It would probably make sense to change the value from 1000 to
1024, which would make it an even 1 MiB. It seems odd to have a power of
ten value for a field that's in a power of two units.
Also, I found the "Put a capping" wording awkward, so this patch changes
that as well.
Created attachment 3093 [details]
This patch does not apply to the XML source but it should be enough to give an idea of the proposed changes
I can't find any of these phrases in the smb.conf manpage. Are you sure this bug still exists in 3.2?
this was a bug in debians example smb.conf
