First, for anyone who is new here, the extraordinarily annoying, pointless messages, that the discussion was closed, then re-opened, then closed, then ... are apparently automatically generated by the bug tracking software. I could speculate on the IQ of whoever decided to make that a feature, or whoever configured the software that way, but I'll refrain.
Second, the post about Windows SMB has nothing to do with anything. That was automatically posted by the bug tracking system.
Third, the strange formatting and numbering (with two number 1's) is also being an artifact of the bug tracking system. If you want to see the post in its uncorrupted form, copy the text of my post and paste it into a text window on your own computer. You will see it formatted as it was originally intended.
