There seems to be no support for account lockout policy based on bad password attempts.

I have tested the command
	pdbedit -P "bad lockout attempt" -C 3
on 2 setups of Samba 3.0.4. One is with a LDAP backend and the other is 
using the default tdb backend.

However, regardless of how many failed logins from the domain user 
account, the account is still not locked out.

Does any one know what can be the causes?
