#1759 Can't edit or convert users


Solaris 8
Samba 3.0.6
Webmin 1.150

I have recently updated Webmin to 1.150 and then today
Samba to 3.0.6. The first thing I did was to try to
'Convert Unix users to Samba users' but this failed
with the message: "Failed to convert user :" but it did
actually create the smbpasswd file.

As I couldn't do anything with the file I deleted it
then manually created a new one. Manually added a user
account to it but when trying to edit this via Webmin
using 'Edit Samba users and passwords' I get the
message: "No Samba users defined". This is despite the
smbpasswd files being there, a user account setup,
Samba actually running and being able to access the
share on it.

I also have problems with the Group part but that might
be related to a known bug. Not sure if the examples
above are though.

    No solution to this bug then. Oh well maybe the next version
    will work.
