Could be some more somewhere.  The current code set's the 
last_change_time and can_change_time to be the same.  If the user 
had a last_change_time field in his or her embpasswd entry, 
then that it used, otherwise the fields are set to the 
current time.  The pass_must_change_time is set to the current 
time + 42 days, so it should not come into play.

Check the pwdb_smb_to_sam() function in lib/util_pwdb.c i think.

I only fixed it in the HEAD branch.  I did not commit the fix to 
the 2.0 branch.  I don;'t even think I looked to see if it was 
there anyways.
