I intend to verify this and remove the samba20 package if the 2.2.3 release
offers a superset of the functionality from the 2.0.x releases.

In the 2.2.1 release, the announcement said that the default lock directory
moved from /var/lock/samba to /var/cache/samba on RH and Solaris because
/var/lock/samba might be cleaned at boot time, which implies that the TDB
files should persist across reboots.  Do you have any other information
regarding this as to why this is so?  Searching on Google didn't yield any
other useful information.
