Samba and Openldap with the attribute "userWorkstation"

We have installed Samba (2.2.5) as PDC and Openldap (2.0.25) for password 
authentification. But we want that several users can only login on their own 
machine in the domain and NOT on any other computer in the domain. Therefore we 
tried to use the attribute 'userworkstation', which is defined in the 
samba.schema, where you can specify a list of machine accounts where the user 
can login. But we found several sources who said that it is not 
yet 'implemented' or 'supported'.

So my questions are: 
Has anyone gotten working his samba with the attribute 'userworkstation', and 
how did he that (which version or CVS of samba)? 
If not, when will it be possible to have a version of samba supporting the 
attribute 'userWorkstations' ?
