yep, you are right. What I meant is that kcc_deleted() is going to apply now
the same logic
for all states of the object, and there may be a difference between
and DeletedObject-Lifetime values. Anyway, your fix will allow us to have
the chance
for clean all kind of isDeleted objects, thanks :)

I think this may be achieved with DsAddEntry() drs call?

I still don't see a test for a subtree of objects with mixed systemFlags :)
Anyway, I may implement such a test when I start implementing a test
for DsAddEntry() (I think we still don't have a sane test for this entry

IMHO, it is ok to be pushed. I would suggest though for you to wait until
end of the week - so that guys at plugfest to get the chance to test only
what related patches. What do you think?

Thanks a lot for your patience Matthias - I am not a fast reviewer, sorry
for that!

Oh, I have a patch for your problem with timeouts in FSMO test:;a=commitdiff;h=10b472fc739854dcc85c9d3dfc81ca4455ef0759
Current timeout is about 20 secs and it should be quite enough, even for
busy/slow machines.
