Can anyone explain me why does smbpasswd program creat two 
identical password hashes in smbpasswd file. I.e instead of NT one it
puts LAN MAN password and 'defaulting to LAN MAN password' msgs appear 
in log file.

BTW, is it neccessary to put a LCT-... string at the end of line? 
Why do numbers there represent current time (second since epoch)?
adding users with script caused these numbers to be identical until
'sleep 1' was put
