User Manager for Domains / RAS callback problem

at least with samba3-alpha15 it was possible to use usermgr and to change
almost any values without error-message. user specific attributes were
stored correctly with ldapsam-backend as long as group.mapping was
done properly.

unfortunately usermgr broke again with alpha17 (and current CVS), because
i could not clearly find the cause, but i suspect recent changes of
the NT-security-descriptor-code.

maybe you try an earlier samba3-tarball.
