[Samba] Are User Logon Hours Enforced on 3.0.7?

I have a single SuSE Samba PDC (only DC) domain w/three winxp using roaming profiles. I have no local domain accounts on any machine. Said setup has been stable for many weeks; I updated from 3.0.5-SUSE to 3.0.7-1.1-SUSE rpm (samba.org) tonight and converted from smbpasswd:/etc/samba/smbpasswd -> tdbsam:/etc/samba/passdb.tdb

My task is to define logon hours for my kids to prevent the urge to go online in the middle of the night. Defining logon hours using 'net user /domain <user> /time:<blah>' was error free. I can see the hours mask in 'pdbedit -LV <user>' changing. However, all my winxp machines still allow an out-of-window logon.

I've googled all evening and not found a reason why setting logon hours for an account has no effect. The 'net user /domain <user> /workstation:blah' works as something of a sanity check.

I tested after 21:00.
I deleted all of the roaming profiles on each computer to avoid any cached profile issues.

My guess is logon hours on 3.0.7 is, so far, implemented semantically.

Appreciate any feedback,

Here's my son's domain account info.
