Description Clock 2003-11-26 00:32:17 UTC
In http://samba.kn.vutbr.cz/samba/docs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf
in section Domain Control, Domain Control Example Configuration, page 55
is smb.conf example with this:

logon path = \{}\{}%N\{}profiles\{}%u

It seems the \{} construct prevents the next character to be expanded to a special char by the \. There seems to be nothing about this in man smb.conf. I suggest adding 
this information in man smb.conf.

This is actually a bug in db2latex, which we use to generate the PDF. \{} is 
not supposed to do anything special. db2latex changes a normal '\' to '\{}'
