just as an information: DO NOT USE THE 3.0.20 PDB MYSQL MODULE BY ANY MEANS!

I just found out that it seems to destroy my SQL database. At least the
password fields are being reset, resulting in

 1. no machine has a domain account anymore
 2. no user can logon

Running (the 3.0.11) smbpasswd over the users and entering their
passwords manually and joining the domain with the clients as well
helps, but as soon as I do a change with pdbedit or even with the
Windows integrated password change, the database gets corrupted again. I
repeat: ALL DATABASE ENTRIES are affected!

Seems something is terribly wrong here...
Have put that up in https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3019

If I can be of any help, please let me know. I know you're doing a great
job and surely have a lot of work and that the MySQL module is not
top-priority. :-) Let me know what I can do for you.
