I had some time today to test samba 3.0 as PDC with LDAP.
We had a user itsd und a group itsd,
and I was unable to open the group properties and to save usersettings with
MS Usermanager.

I switched to a new groupname (itsdgroup instead of itsd) , and it works.
If it is a problem to have identical user an groupnames,
it may be notable in the samba howto collection.
