John, any chance your password history is set to more then 15 passwords ?

Simo, replicated account-policies in LDAP (as part of ldapsam) are part of
samba3-trunk since a long time already. 


Well, one of the well-hidden-almost-unknown features of trunk, I guess :) 

It has a couple of issues (on my long list of things to fix) and will see a
redesign to put all account-policies directly below the sambaDomainObject. I
hope to be able to work on that next.
