I thought newbie observers had a bug, but it turns out
I was just configuring the ports file incorrectly. I
figured this out by reading findslot.c and various
other ntserv code. 

I made some changes in the sample_ports file so people
can know how to setup observer ports in a newbie
server without having to read through the code.
