Sorry, brain-fart, you'll probably be interested in knowing what version
does work.  The latest version of Samba that I've tested as working with
the password issue is 3.0.24.  I'm having trouble getting ACL support to
work with it, but I have got ADS and winbind working seamlessly.

The smbpasswd on my PDC (Solaris 9, Samba 3.026a) will truncate or
corrupt passwords over 8 chars.

The smbpasswd command on the linux clients (Samba 3.024a) is OK.
Anyone know if this is a samba version issue or something solaris
