The last one was for example Bug 7066, fixed with c6b5136.
My problem is that I don't dare touching the passdb
interface to change it to NTTIME without this protection.
Others are much more careful than I am, so for others this
is not a problem. We can certainly leave the pdb interface
at unix times forever, we have lived with it for quite a
while. And, this will be mainly a Samba3 issue that can be
done step by step. Samba4 does not have to adopt this.
