Description of problem:
After upgrading our server to Redhat 7.3 from Redhat 7.2 the ability to 
syncronize "Offline files" in Windows 2000 ceased to work. When unplugging the 
network the files are now either unavailable (non visible) or non-readable. 
Authentication is done through a Windows NT PDC with security = domain. If the 
file is world r/w then synchronization is possible. If you bring up 
the "Offline files folder" you can see that you have no access to the files.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up samba server with security = domain and NOT as PDC (haven't tried 
2. Create a few files and deny access to other users than yourself and your 
3. On windows 2000 client, mark the files and select "Make available offline".
4. Go offline or kill the samba service.
5. Try to open the files

Actual Results:  File access is denied.

Expected Results:  Should have been able to modify the files offline for later 

Additional info:

Tried installing samba-2.2.5-1.i386.rpm from the samba team and this behaviour 
disappears. It is also fixed with the samba packages from
