Bug Description

1) In Ubuntu 9.04 ...
2) while updating to samba-common 2:3.3.2-1ubuntu3.3 ...
3) I had non-conflicting changes in smb.conf, after viewing the diff tried an experimental 3 way merge, and expected it to merge the changes silently, open a merge tool or fail and return to the screen where another handling strategy could be selected.
4) But it crashed immediately after confirming (with the next/forward button). The rest of the update process completed (successfully as far as I can tell).

Reviewing the merge result, I discovered there was a merge conflict detected within my local changes - unsure why that happended, but merging should not fail silently anyway.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. This bug did not have a package associated with it, which is important for ensuring that it gets looked at by the proper developers. You can learn more about finding the right package at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/FindRightPackage. I have classified this bug as a bug in samba.

When reporting bugs in the future please use apport, either via the appropriate application's "Help -> Report a Problem" menu or using 'ubuntu-bug' and the name of the package affected. You can learn more about this functionality at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ReportingBugs.

affects: ubuntu → samba (Ubuntu)

Feel free, but I deselected samba on purpose, because I do not think this is related to the merging, and not to the package itself.
