[Samba] Intended behaviour of "add user" and smbpasswd

I'd like to upgrade my 2.2 samba to the latest 3.x stable, so I'm
experimenting with the new features of 3.x on a RHEL 3 clone. I've run
into some difficulty when using usrmgr.exe for administrating users.
I've filled out the 'add user script' define with:
add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -g sambausers -c "Samba
User" -d /dev/null -s /bin/false -M "%u"
When I try an add a user using usrmgr.exe, I get an 'Access is
Denied' message. I turned on debugging and I could see the request being
made, and I noticed that the unix account was being created, but the smb
backend account was not.
It seems like the desired behaviour of 'add user' would add the smb
account in my backend (smbpasswd file)
I've searched high and low on Google, but I've been unable to find
an answer to this question. I have been able to find several smb.conf
files that look like mine.
I'd appreciate any input.
