 thanks for the tip. I played around with pdbedit, but it seems to have 
 effect only on local samba accounts or when samba acts as a domain 
 controller. Specifically, pdbedit says that policy "bad lockout attempt" 
 is 0 (disabled), yet the accounts cached from domain are still locked 
 out when used in offline mode.
 It is also not possible to unlock an account with pdbedit, because it 
 doesn't seem to know about the cached accounts, pdbedit -L gives nothing
