I suppose there is a big question -- if smbpasswd data (or sam or
whatever) is shared via nis+, ldap, ... then there must be common format
for time values. 8 byte data means overhead for 32 bit time_t systems
and 4 byte data means data loss for 64 bit time_t. I suppose, windows is
recording 64bit time values?

Sometimes a feeling is all we humans have to go on.
