Ok - Gerald discovered the cause of this problem, and I
have changed the CVS code to give a better error message.

The problem with "rpc out of range" is due to the machine
account for a client machine not being present in /etc/passwd,
although present in smbpasswd.

Remember, it needs to be in *both* places before a client
can be added into a Samba hosted domain.
