	smb2www perl parses what it expects to be the output from
	an earlier version of smbclient.  It seems that in the
	newer (2.2) samba, the assumptions made by the perl script
	as to what the output from smbclient looks like are no
	longer true.  Hence, smb2www hangs and does not work
	completely.  (The front page will not display workgroups
	available, and cannot enumerate browse lists of those

	The functions in GetSMBGroups and GetSMBHosts
	(and potentially some others) need to be updated for the
	new output of smbclient.  Alternatively, add a CONFLICTS
	for samba >= 2.2 or mark the package broken for now until its 
	real maintainer fixes it.
