Thanx for the reply....I am now using 3.0.4.

A few questions tho'....see below:

Is the change interval set anywhere (eg: in the registry)?

Is it always 15 mins? (as I was seeing).

Also, if I were using a local smbpasswd file (and I had not upgraded to 
3.0.4) does this mean that the machine account entries would be regularly 
updated in this file?

Or is the 'phenomenon' restricted only to Samba + LDAP?

Thanx for your help.
