I've pushed an updated set of changes to my branch.

The problem I have, aside from a small segfault mdw will patch shortly
in his ValidatePassword code, is that dcpromo on a new second Windows
2008 DC fails with:

"The replication system has encountered an internal error"

while replicating cn=configuration

How do I debug something like this?

(otherwise, all of 'make test' passes fine)
