No problem right now anymore for me, I have user root now with -u 0.

What about 0.8.5 ? ;-)

As many people will take your toolset as the one to start with and
will take the included HOWTO as the one to follow, I would suggest to
modify the HOWTO to something like:

"As bugreport x.y.z in bugzilla.samba.org states, there are problems
with using the Container ou=Computers with Samba 3.0.x ... "

or something similar.

If you know that, you don't need the HOWTO.
If you don't know that, you should be able to fully trust the HOWTO
and it should point out well-known obstacles.

I would be happy to help you with contributing my experiences with
your (very helpful) tools and maybe adding the points that I missed.

Thanks a lot so far !
best regards,
