Bug Description

Binary package hint: samba

Removed samba using apt-get purge samba after making bad samba config.
Did not reboot.
Browsed to Home directory and attempted to Share my Documents folder.
Received message stating that the file sharing service was not installed. I chose the option to install.
I already had Synaptic running from a previous bit of searching I had been doing.
I received a message stating the installation could not continue because it couldn't get an exclusive lock.
I closed Synaptic.
I then attempted to re-share the same folder - Documents from my Home directory.
I chose to install the software after being presented the message that the file sharing service was not installed.
During installation, the process got to the point of "configuring samba". The line shown was "GET samba/run_mode".
The installation was in a hung state at that point and did not complete.

Thanks for the bug report. If you wanted to remove samba you should do apt-get remove --purge samba-common.
