[Samba] Locking user accounts

Hello all,

At this moment I am running a samba-ldap-pdc.
This works really good. But what worries me is the following thing:
user accounts never get locked. This is a problem cause anyone can guess or 
use bruteforce to enter password. Is there a solution/workaround for this? 
I want the following situation : when a user tries to logon for 4 times I 
want the account to lock out the account. Winnt disables the account for 
several minutes and then the account is locked out.

Does anyone have a idea?

Thanx in advance
