[Samba] Domain authentification problem with LDAP

I know that the last 2 versions of the script I am working with are missing
this function when using the -w switch (as documented) it will NOT add the
sambaSAMAccount information.  I have had several users also request a copy
of this script from me solving their problems with a similar issue.  It
seems very odd that there are so many similar issues lately on the posts
concerning the (I can't connect to the Domain).  Had it not been for the
fact I decided to look at the script itself I would not have found this
problem.  Going to the IDEALX site I would love to send them comments but as
my French is very minimal not too sure where to go.

James - this is the second time you have made that reference to the
smbldap-useradd script.

There have been a lot and lot of versions of the smbldap-tools and
perhaps the version that you are looking at is missing something like
that but I assure you that most versions aren't.
