Yes. I have this issue (and have had it for at least 5 years) using
the smbldap-tools. To workaround I now just precreate an account using
LAM (http://lam.sourceforge.net/) and then all is well with the PDC
join. The previous workaround was to create a user for the machine
account on the pdc first in the /etc/passwd.
