I'm getting  the following when trying to join an Active Directory
domain from Samba 3. 

Before anyone asks: mikem is a domain admin and use spnego = no is set
to allow to me to auth against a Win2K3 box...

net ads join -U mikem
mikem password:
[2003/08/20 13:45:30, 0] lib/charcnv.c:convert_string(194)
  convert_string: Required 19, available 16

>From Google, it seems lots of people are having this issue, but I can't
find any answers in English.
