Here is something to add to the low priority section of the todo list...

This is just a minor annoyance and is easily worked around, but the '-j'
option to smbpasswd requires that the 'password server' list be in the top
level smb.conf file (ie. it can not be in an included file).

# smbpasswd -j MYDOMAIN
No password server list given in smb.conf - unable to join domain.
