Ooops, my message was written to be misunderstood quite easily. The fact
that puzzled me, was the password change dialog on each and every login.
There should be a passchange dialog if a) his password expires or b) he
chooses to change the password himself after a certain amount of time or c)
some sort of local service requires a pass change. So if meaningful domain
password expiry notification and the (optional?) subsequent password change
request triggered by Samba is not possible with Samba 2.x (yet) there's only
options b) and c) left, right?
