How do you plan on creating the SMB/CIFS transaction that would delete the 
account? Have you used ethereal to check what commands unjoining a 
workstation from the domain passes over the network?

What is wrong with manually executing:

	net rpc user delete machine\$ -Uroot%secret

It beats the challenge of getting Microsoft to change their workstation 
code! :-)
