Ah.  Okay.  That would explain why it's wrong.  I used it previously 
(don't know the exact samba version) and it worked then so it must have 
broken when I upgraded samba.  Unfortunately, all the ldap changes went 
in at the same time so I assumed the problem had something to do with that.

Thanks for clarifying!

           Until we are first independent, we cannot be interdependent.
