I have a debian squeeze machine on which, after every boot, there is an empty directory "Public" (yes, capital P) in all the /home-Folders.
It obviously looks SMB- or FTP-related, but I can't figure out who or what is responsible for its creation. The only hint I have is that some other administrator has installed the packages
samba, gsambad, gadmintools, winbind via apt-get and purged all of them again a short time later.
(Though gadmintools is a metapackage including more stuff for FTP, BIND, DHCP, Squid and so on, there are none of these services running on the system anymore. Meaning, all of the dependent services of gadmintools have been purged as well.)
I can't find anything in /etc/init.d/ or /etc/rc* that would suggest anything of said services survived and lives to create directories. Also, I can't find the string "Public" in /etc/ or /var/ or whereever, hoped it would be defined in some config file. I even used
chattr +i on the directory, hoping to find someone complaining in syslog at boot time, but to no avail.
Can anyone give me more clues about this?
