Well, samba-common has the same fate:

# rpm -qf --qf '%{name}-%{version}-%{release}@%{arch}\n' /etc/samba/lmhosts /etc/samba/smb.conf | sort -u
samba-common-3.0.23c-2 at i386
samba-common-3.0.23c-2 at x86_64
# TZ=C ls -l --full-time /etc/samba/lmhosts /etc/samba/smb.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   20 2006-09-02 02:59:06.000000000 +0000 /etc/samba/lmhosts
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 9765 2006-09-02 02:59:06.000000000 +0000 /etc/samba/smb.conf
# rpm -V samba-common.x86_64 | grep /etc/samba
.......T  c /etc/samba/lmhosts
.......T  c /etc/samba/smb.conf
# rpm -V samba-common.i386 | grep /etc/samba

So, again the timestamps of the config files in the two coinstalled
packages differ and an upgrade will make one of them think the config
file was changed.
