Right,  but that is only the FIRST operation for that connection. Read 
that log again. The LAST operation is where it adds the entry.  
Therefore it is my understanding that samba (or the idealx script) is 
searching for the entry which doesn't exist (as expected, because this 
is the first time the machine has joined) and then adding it...   My 
point was that the very LAST thing that happened is the machine user 
gets added, and then nothing else (so searches or anything) happens 
after that.

My question is why isn't samba doing anything _after_ the user gets 
added to LDAP?
