I found that I had the smbldab_bind.conf passwords set to use hashes  
instead of the plaintext password.  After I changed that I am able to  
add new accounts, although hashed passwords in here would be useful :).
I also found that these scripts (even the latest 0.9.2 ones) are  
incapable of using the new sambaDomain object, so I had to set it to  
use the previous uidNumber object instead.
I should probably see if I can update openSuSE's wiki for 10.2...
