Description Christian Ambach 2011-08-25 15:56:22 UTC
This was found while testing with patches that obnox has in his v3-6-ctdb branch that change the behavior of rbt traverse to return the number of records found, as other traverse functions do

However, code in winbindd checks for a return code != 0 to detect an error. This code then trips and reports a false error.

It does not harm to correct this error checking already, maybe the rbt fixes come into 3.6 later and then it will be good to be prepared
