Godd news is that after changing the machine account entries in
smbpasswd to match the new format, the problems I prefviously reported
go away.

When I run at the default debug level ( 1 i think ) the NT Wks complains
about the PDC fot the Domain not being available.  However, the user
profile and validation still works fine?! ( i defined USE_ARCFOUR in the
compile )

If I run at a debug level of about 5 the NT Wks goes through fine (
logins scripts and all ).  


I didn't see any references to this new format in the docs.  Did I miss
it somewhere?
