[Samba] 15-character NetBIOS name won't join domain

I've got a strange problem.  If the NetBIOS name is exactly 15
characters (A23456789012345), it can't join a domain -- gets
ACCESS_DENIED.  14 characters work fine, and 15 characters work fine on
Windows clients.  I'm joining an NT4 domain.

I've tried 2.2.2, 2.2.3a, and current (as of this morning) - same
results.  I'm running on NetBSD.

Does anyone use 15-character names with success?
