I have the same problem with my 2.0 samba. Could it be related to a
problem I have with NT's domain Usrmgr? In the user managers settings,
the option "user not allowed to change password" (or similar) is for
some reason set, and all I get from usrmgr when I try to edit _any_ options is
an error message, "rpc failed".
