samba controlled domain (2.2.8a) with an LDAP backend.
Everything was working snazzy, till I changed my password yesterday.  Now when I log in (win2k server sp4) I get the password will expire 
today message.

samba must be passing some value to windows, which may or may not trigger a local policy to show that message

I boosted logging to level 10..however I do not see anything that may flag something like that.  What should I look for?  I have scoured the 
web and foundsimilar issues, but with no update as to resolution.
