Samba 2.7 and SNAP Server

I hope someone can extend some advice to help us solve our problem.

A couple of months ago we were told to upgrade to SAMBA 3.0 so that the
SNAP server could read the domain users in SAMBA PDC.  It works... it
worked GREAT!!  

The problem lies that there are some basic functionalities that don't
work like for example allowing the client (w2k) to change his/her own
password.  Also, many clients are told that there passwords will expire
in NUM amount of days.  These are some of the problems we're

I've read on the mailing lists that most of these problems have been
solved in the latest CVS version.  We currently run debian so.... we
rely on the package maintainer to put out the latest version.  Currently
the latest version of SAMBA on Debian is 2.999+3.0.alpha20-3.  None of
these problems have been fixed in this version.  My questions are:

1.  Does Samba 2.7 have SNAP support?
2.  Is compiling the latest CVS my only solution?
3.  Can anyone think of anything else we could do?

P.S.  I purposely posted this on the technical list of SAMBA as I don't
think a regular user would know whether SAMBA 2.7 has SNAP support.
Please forgive me if this was a mistake.
