Greetings ...

     Been away a little so, please forgive me if this has been discussed 
... I did search the archives and googled the net and this is what I 
came up with ...

     Standard Samba 2.2.7 does not rebind to do updates.  This is a 
problem when using LDAP and a replicated directory.

	I did try this on the normal mail-list, but got no responce so I hoped 
to try here.

     I found, 
which has a patch to add rebind. Which I am going to try, because I need 
it and it looks right, not that I am a programmer or anything like that.

     I was wondering when, or if this would be added to 2.2.  I know 
that we don't wish to add anything to 2.2, unless it is a bug fix or 
sercurity problem, but this could be a problem before 3.0 gets released 
as production.
