LDAP an %variables

Hi there!

I recently set up a samba server with LDAP support. After some tests with
different windows versions my profile was trashed. So I tried to store
the profile in a subdirectory "%a" (which should resolve to the windows
release WinNT Win2k etc.). Unfortunately this does not work when specified
in LDAP.

Is there a reason for this?

I'd really like to use the %<var> statements in LDAP. I already hacked
around a bit and it works for me (just copied one line!) - however I'd
like to see it in the official release if there's no further technical 
problem I can't see by now.
