This bug appears to have been known about for quite some time (since
sometime in 2003 at least). Reviewing the changelogs for the current samba
3.0.3pre version, I dont see anything that looks like this has been
addressed, I searched bugzilla.samba.org, and did not find any open bugs
related to this.

I'd really like to separate machine and user accounts completely. Due to
this bug, I cannot do that. Not to mention, this works with 2.2.x versions
of samba, and the documentation does not say this shouldn't work, and it's
the default configuration if you use smbldap-tools from idealx.

Is this bug likely to be fixed soon, or is there a particular reason it's
being put off?
