Hmm, I'm using 3.0.6-3 in Debian Sarge. I could try massaging in 3.0.7
from Sid just to try, although I hoped not to have to do this, being the
renound 'stable' Debian :)

When changing passwords through Windows with an ldap backend, how does
samba know what the sambaPwdMustChange value be set to? I don't know if
this value comes from windows somewhere, smb.conf or hard-coded in

I've noticed something else odd too. Hardware clock and system time are
correct on the Samba server, yet if I have a look at 'net time', the
output is almost three days in the past! How the heck?
