>2: doing that nearly fscked up my already existent DIT for always;
I'd be very interested in hearing how this happened and what almost got 
borked.  I can't for the life of me think of anything that the 
smbldap-tools package should have done above just adding random 
attributes and entries in a lot of places if badly configured.  The 
worst (again, that I can imagine) that you would have had to do would be 
clean with a fine tooth scrub brush.

I haven't delved deep into the code, so I don't doubt that things could 
be pretty powerful, just that I haven't seen how they could go far 
enough to completely bork up a whole LDAP database.
