  Hi Luke,

  Was this the latest version of samba you've downloaded?? If this is the
  case, I'll build a new samba with su instead of fakeroot. (Fakeroot is
  really flaky...). The postinst get messed-up sometimes when you use fakeroot
  to build packages. Installing these on my system (has a bartw account) won't
  give errors since the user exists.

  Hope to hear from you...
