I have a Samba 2.0.7 serving as PDC on a small network, and after adding
a new user (unix user and via smbpasswd) the domain user list is not
updated. This is a problem, as I am trying to copy their profile to the
PDC, and need to give their domain account access to their profile
(among other things).

Does anybody know how to fix this. I have restarted samba, and also
rebooted (compiled new kernel over the weekend).

Also, does anyone know when samba will:
1) Continue to show the domain users in the permissions dialogs on
windows clients (instead of the DOMAIN\Account Unknown)
2) Support domain groups
