This one is a bit weird, as this option is not required here in any test setup - Samba Server for OS/2 definitely works without it, that is why this option is not included in the default smb.conf.

I heard from others that need this option, however I cannot reproduce why it is required for some.

The initial smb.conf created by sscc 1.1.2 or better has this line inserted as a comment with a line of explanation.
