I assume then this is - at least at the moment - "normal" behaviour of
pdbedit. Perhaps someone else on this list can tell me if this is going
to change or has already changed e.g. with Samba 4.

I already did that, and it works. That's not the point I'm asking for.
As I wrote in my first post, I want to use a GUI for creating samba
shares that relies on the output of pdbedit -L for listing users which
are allowed/denied access. If pdbedit -L does not work, I will either
have to write my own "pdbedit" which wil mimic the expected output by
calling ldapsearch and formatting the output like pdbedit does. Or I
will have to find another suitable GUI.

Thank you for your help,
