Samba 3.0.14a fixes some critical functionality bugs in 3.0.11

I think we really should be upgrading Samba 3.0.14a before FC4 if possible,
3.0.11 is a bit behind and misses some critical bugs in 3.0.11.
For example, I am personally seeing these known bugs in 3.0.11-6 on my system:
* Read only file deletion failure caused by new delete semantics in Windows XP
SP2 and the MS 04-044 security hotfix. [For me this means that XP will allow me
to 'delete' a file which I do not have permissions to, and then it reappears
when I refresh]
* Inability for Print Administrators to pause/resume/purge print queues.
And this would be a good one to have:
* Performance enhancements when serving directories containing large number of
I would regard both of the first two as showstopper bugs in the FC samba RPMas
they break basic functionality, and if the shipped RPM is not upgraded these
would be good candidates for a post-release update.
Release notes for review including all changes and bugs fixed since 3.0.11 at
The new 3.0.14a landed in rawhide a little while ago, so I'll close this bug now.
