I had consulted the man page -- but now it turns out, that it
was the old 2.2.x one.

Then I had turned to your latest HOWTO-Collection (PDF from
www.samba.org/~terpstra/NT4migration/) -- but this one seems
missing a hint about the new behaviour. Maybe a good place to
insert a sentence or two about it also?

Thanks again, John! (Saved me from headaches about how to
re-write my draft....  ;-)
