I have a situation were the ldap filter option is needed as well. It's 
very anoying this was removed from Samba. Never read an explanation 
either, only 'configure your nss_ldap to relfect the ldap filter', which 
is not really an option on our Solaris 9 systems. Samba Team, please 
give us back the 'ldap filter' option!
