The crucial difference seems to be that with the new patch, the 'ldap
suffix' is only appended if the 'ldap machine suffix' has a trailing
comma -- indicating that it's not a fully-qualified dn.  So this is not
really equivalent to the old behavior, it merely provides added
flexibility to the configuration.

OTOH, the amount of flexibility already present in smb.conf frightens me
most days. :)
