Samba 2.2 stores the workstation trust password in a different
location (well actually in a tdb instead of a flat file) than
2.0.7 so rejoining a domain will be necessary when upgrading.

It shouldn't be too difficult to write a conversion program.
This info should probably be in some release notes or something
