security reasons) called a specific command that returned the SWAT
interface to the client browser. It had nothing to do with gnome or

I'm sorry that's not a very detailed answer and with my current workload I 
can't research further right now. If I can find some time next week, I'll

stopped using it (after I lost a few hours of configuration). I suggest 
being very careful and making backup's of the smb.conf before using.
