This really helped with lengthy logon times, thanks (so not really the
topic of my post, but anyway)!

OK, this also helped - Samba-3 by Example implies that you have to use
Administrator - after I tried to log to the domain using root, I was
Almost, because I also had to do one change in my smb.conf:
add machine script = /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd -w '%u'
add machine script = /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd -w '%m'
(note the %m).
I don't know why this guys make so misleading and buggy books/HOWTOs -
even Samba-3 by Example, which is "official Samba publication" has these
two bugs I mentioned!
