i know, suggestions are cheap, good patches are like diamonds :-)
if the problem is smbpasswd permissions, perhaps it can be set to mode
660 instead of 600, and with a group something like domainadd. any
user with domainadd group, can add a windows box to the domain.
users can be created in this special group that could do nothing else
but add windows boxes to the domain. no logins - no share permissions
i did look at the code, but it is way over my head without several hundred
hours of study. :-)
