I found a possible problem in may setup. I've installed samba but didn't
included the new samba ldap schema which include new attriutes, e.g.

I think the error is gone after I've installed the new schema.

I think samba has tried to do some ldap actions with new attributes but had
some trouble with them because the new attributes didn't exists in ldap
I think thats the reason samba has disabled the account.

Can anybody confirm this behavior?

Should I fill out a bug report althought it is possible my fault?
