I kept having a 'password expired' issue with the upgrade. I used the
'X' flag to tell samba to ignore the password expiration error until I
can figure that one out.

I don't know why samba is giving me the password expiration error. Now
that I'm upgraded to 3.3.3 I can remove the 'X' from my LDAP record and
test with samba to find the solution.

If the solution is a modification to LDAP (OpenLDAP), I can only do that
on the weekends. If the solution is a change to /etc/samba/smb.conf,
I can make that change during the day.

Any idea why I get the 'password expired' error?
