This is by design.  Your smbldap scripts are allowing
normal users to add posixAccount entries.  This is the
way it has always been.

So this begs the question, would be be upset if we changed
the behavior so that we immediately bail out
if you are not either connected as root or have the
necessary privilege?  I would be inclined to think this
is the correct approach, but it would not be backwards

I think I can probebly reproduce this last 2 error
easily enough.  We'll try to get this corrected in
the first 3.0.12preX release sometime next week.
