Description Sergei V. Rozinov 2003-10-10 03:43:41 UTC
When saving current config in SWAT, the program strips
quotes from smb.conf file. For example, specifying in SWAT for some share:

Valid users = +"sibron\domain admins"

gives the line appears in smb.conf:

Valid users = +sibron\domain admins

and even

Valid users = +sibron\domain, admins
