Hey, I've disabled after thinking a long time over this issue, the native samba support in mc. I hope that not so much people used that. My reasons for disabling this feature is that this was based on a statically linked in samba lib from 1996... without any updates to it. Since the features of samba changed since 1996 a lot it is clear that there were quite many issues with that feature. See #451964 & #432324 for example. Furthermore I had some fears that his lib might contains some security bugs... so deactivating this feature would solve several problems. If there is anybody who is interested in this feature please mail me, since upstream is pretty dead there is no great chance that he will fix this in a reasonable time. So if someone have good C skills and would like to help to port mc to link dynamically against libsmbclient please start working on it ;-) Greetings Winnie -- .''`.
