Sorry my mistake, everyone should have the X set so that the password expiry does not happen. If you unset the X then this means the expiry is set.

Is this documented somewhere? smb.passwd(5) man page doesn't say anything 
about the X flag:


And it seems to be set on by default when adding users with smbpasswd -a.

Strange thing is that I've got it set also, but I've never been asked to 
change a password?
