Let me repeat it again, in the hope you will read it this time: I am 
advocating only keeping SUPPORTED VERSIOBS.

It's patched to 3.6.15, actually. And I've pushed 3.6.18 to OpenCSW.

I am using OpenCSW's Samba on Solaris 10 because Sun and now Oracle 
update path is a complete blackhole, and impossible to predict or 
influence. They are updating it now, but who knows why or for how long?

Gee, thank you very much. That had just completely escaped me.
But luckily, Samba 3.6.18 also corresponds to that definition, just as 
GnuPG 1.4.14 and MySQL 5.5.33.

Peter, I am asking you to please make more effort to read other people's 
posts and not distort their meaning.
