One thing I've notived is that I have been creating my entries in
smbpasswd incorrectly.  I used to just use smbpasswd -a USER, and it
would add the entry, but with no flags.  I have used createuser and
then smbpasswd -e USER and I am now getting a U flag for my users.
The root account still has no U flag as I used smbpasswd to bootstrap
the smbpasswd file; should I add the U flag manually?
