2.6.  I keep getting the message "trust account xxx should be in
DOMAIN_GROUP_RID_USERS."  What do I need to do?

Nothing.  This is a note that one of the developers put 
in to remind him of a issue that is yet to be resolved.  It 
is harmless and should be ignored.  If you find it filling 
up your debug logs, you can set it to be logged at a higher 
level.   Edit passdb/sampass.c and locate the string.  Then 
change the debug level from 0 to 3 or higher.
