Using current CVS version as of 4/29/02....

Trying to add a 2000Pro workstation to the PDC.
Want to use a non-root account (or at least a different smb password so I
can have others with ability to add workstations to domain)

#1 - Created a new "domain" account seperate from root
#2 - Made "smbpasswd" of "domain" account different from /etc/passwd
#3 - Try to join domain -- get this:
[2002/04/29 09:29:18, 0] rpc_server/srv_samr.c:api_samr_set_userinfo(670)
  api_samr_set_userinfo: Unable to unmarshall SAMR_Q_SET_USERINFO.
[2002/04/29 09:29:18, 0] libsmb/smbencrypt.c:decode_pw_buffer(263)
  decode_pw_buffer: incorrect password length (-272661585).
#4 - Change "smbpasswd" of "domain" account to match /etc/passwd -- and it
joins OK

I assume something is broken here?
