I'm trying to understand why one would want ntsec on by default and smbntsec off by default?

smbntsec doesn't work reliably given the variability of smb servers.

Still seems strange to me. If off it doesn't work at all (right?)! Even if it worked 50% of the time that's 50% better than 0%.

What's strange in having an unreliable option only switched on if the user really wants it and (hopefully) knows what (s)he's doing?

The people who either doesn't know what they are doing (but know what they want) and don't have a clue of what they need to search for and how to turn it on, may benefit from it being on, it working correctly in those cases where it does work! ;-)

Actually I don't know of a case where the user wants ntsec to be ignored just because the file system is mounted (again, assuming it works properly in their environment).

Which situations does it not work reliably in? Does it work reliably when there is all Windows systems involved (sans 9x), which I would think would be a pretty common situation? Does it just have problems with some versions of Samba?
