[Samba] Expiring password problem with AD config

I've set up a configuration with a Samba PDC usgin Ubuntu 10.04 and Samba 3.4.7.
The backend is LDAP (zimbra ldap).

I've an annoying issue, where even if in LDAP for every user I set "password never expires", at every login Windows prompts me for changing it.

Is there anything I can check?


(on a side note I've also the problem that when the user logs in, notedpad is executed with a document in it, which seems a .desktop or .ini file, which I don't know where it comes from)
