I'm trying to connect a linux machine to a windows machine share using 
an Active Directory domain account.  I'm using smbfs and I get the 
following error, "Access denied".  After some troubleshooting I found 
that the password is too long!  The password works with 23 characters 
but if its 24 or more characters it fails.  I am copying/pasting the 
password so there is no chance of mistyping anything.  I am using 
samba-client-3.0.32-0.6 from SLES 10.  Is this a known bug?
