In the patch you sent Thu, 29 Jun 2006 17:14:06 +0200 in
line 244 I find:

+               /* if we get access denied, a possible cause was that we had and open
+                  connection to the DC, but someone changed our machine account password
+                  out from underneath us using 'net rpc changetrustpw' */

It is this comment and the resulting logic I don't
understand. Could you explain what scenario this is
necessary for?

Thanks a lot,
