#303 closed defect (not fixable)

sscc: Statusbar tips are incomplete (not yet created; duplicated; incorrect)

I can't find this while browsing the source, or I would provide a diff.

Hover over "LM announce" and the statusbar text displayed is:

This string is shown when browsing. v% is expanded into the version Samba number.

(I can't find this in the English mkm here. I must be missing it.)

This same text is used for Server string, Null passwords, Log file, and the rest of the options on Global, page 1. It should really only apply to the Server string, and needs some correcting ("%v" and "Samba version number").

Honestly, I would use the statusbar for general page help, e.g., "This page defines the highest level of the Samba server configuration." I would then suggest tooltips for the various items on each page, so that the user's eye does not need to constantly shift to the statusbar.
