Description jkoenin 1999-12-18 04:41:26 UTC
Attempting to save changes to SMB in the Servers section of Linuxconf
causes Linuxconf to crash and the data in /etc/smb.conf to be damaged.
Future attempts to access SMB data in Linuxconf cause Linuxconf to crash.

This seems to work properly under linuxconf-1.17r2, which should be in the next
release of Raw Hide.  Please upgrade to it and let me know if it solves the
problem for you.
