Yes, that's a problem. It's best that the I18N patch is all feeded
back into Samba's main development.

The server I plan to test is Red Hat 7.3. :-) But, I think I can test
on my laptop running -current, later.

* the right I18N fix should be merged into the main package
than not forking a I18N package.
