Does this mean that the Samba is not reliable anymore ? The smbpasswd is 
only part of my question. Of course I could install it from the previous 
RPM, yet it would not solve my problem at all. I want to know what is 
going on, really, with my Samba-3.0.4 (packaged by SuSE)  installation. 
I assume that changes should have some purpose but they are clearly not 
well described. Or Samba just happens to be too buggy to be used nowadays ?

My problem in short is, I have successfully (re-)joined my computer into 
domain, yet it ceased to authenticate either domain either local user.
