Samba 4 alpha 4: LDAP Authentication and Users

I'm running Samba 4 alpha 4 on Fedora. I followed the Samba4 howto
and it runs, but I cannot authenticate against it.
I added a user by running the ./setup/newuser script to add a couple
of shell account users, and then I'm trying to
use an ldap client to authenticate. Connecting anonymously works
fine, and I can browse the data fine. But, I cannot
authenticate as any user.
The client's I'm using are (currently) the Apache Directory Studio,
and a win32-only client named LDAP Admin. In
Apache Directory Studio, the authentication dialog lets me
authenticate with a "Bind DN or user" and a "Bind password".
If I provisioned the server exactly as the howto showed, what would I
put for the Bind DN or user field? I'd be happy
to use or try a different client but I have a feeling that's not the problem.
What I'm trying to do is log in as an administrator so that I can add
group(s) and user(s).
Thanks, and great work!
