Plain Text Passwords in Unicode?

Usually negotiating plaintext passwords and Unicode are mutually exclusive
so I'm not sure what the right behavior is but apparently Samba (3.0.14a
at least) doesn't like the plaintext password in Unicode. Is that the
right bahavior? I cannot easily modify the security policy on my XP
workstation so theres no way to check at the moment.

Anyone know off-hand if the plaintext password should be "ASCII" even if
Unicode is negotiated?
