Samba3 did send the previous form, matching windows until very recently,
when I changed it, because only samba clients read that feild, I thought
it gave better behaviour on the network.  I didn't intend it to get into
the release, but once it was in it was decided it wasn't doing any harm.

Samba4 again matches windows and sends the former form, but does not use
that value in the client.
