Samba version? OS? It all works for me with 3.0.11 and RHS3, OpenLDAP
2.2.24, after much experimentation. In fact, it all works *too* well and
you have to Google to find Jerry carter's annotated code remarks to help
change things back, when you've been frigging about and users never get
to get to logon again until you've fixed your own mistakes, caused by
lack of clearness in the man page.

What are the following supposed to mean in clear English?

- reset count minutes
- disconnect time
- user must logon to  change  password
- bad lockout attempt
