Really ? It shouldn't make any difference. I'll have a look.

Not very well, unfortunatelly :( I use trunk everyday and tried various
combinations of trusts using vmware, but that's all I know about. After
commiting I said it's available to play with, but it's hard to expect
all people doing this immediately.

You mean purely native SAM replication or Samba LDAP-based SAM
replication ?

It is stored in this object. Well, actually under it, and I suspect you
mean multi-value binary field or sth.

Does that mean we're skipping Volker's proposed approach or getting
closer to it (refer to question about replication) ?

My heart is bleeding about the code ;)  but go ahead if we want
to simplify this solution. And we do want to simplify it...
