Hi Jim,

	Thanks for the patch!  I actually automatically build the
tdb.c file from the Samba SVN tree (with a series of patches and
scripts) at: 

	svn://svnanon.samba.org/samba/branches/SAMBA_4_0/source/lib/tdb

So I'm going to forward this patch (attached) to the Samba developers.
It appears to apply cleanly to .../source/lib/tdb/common/tdb.c.  Once
they commit it into their SVN tree, I can just pick it up from there.

Regards,

						- Ted
