When you say "rpc fault", do you actually mean an error
code rather than a "fault". ie. if the SAMR_SET_USERINFO
level 0x1a returns with status set to 0x1c000006 instead
of status zero then isn't that the same as an NT response.

Can you send me the .cap file for the W2Ksp2 -> NT4 SP5 PDC
join domain transaction ?

I think we need to not ship 2.2.1 until we have this fixed.
