[Samba] NT4 RAS Dial-in with Samba 3 PDC

I installed UsrMgr.exe (downloaded from the MS support site) on an XP 
client, joined the client to the domain hosted by the Samba 3 PDC, then 
opened UsrMgr.exe.  The NT tools saw the domain and listed the users 
and groups, but when I clicked on a user or group and hit "properties", 
the UsrMgr.exe crashed.  Am I missing something obvious like "you cant 
run this tool on a newer OS than NT 4"?  Or "you have to run it on a 
server version of the OS", or should this work?
