Thats what I thought too but when I attempted to change a password with
smbpasswd, it prompted about a missing rid attribute.  Of course, at this
point, I've got so much junk in my one entry and its been hand edited and
machine edited and everything else edited...

I left out an important word there - "almost".  This has almost made
working with NT fun again.  The quicker I can put that beast of an
operating system out of its misery, the better, at least on the server
side.  I'm never going to get rid of it for Workstations but I can at
least serve up services in a stable manner.

Is it worthwhile submitting a bug report then?  Or is LDAP stuff not even
on the bug scene yet?
