It should work without --use-rfc2307, if it doesn't, then I personally
would class it as a bug.

I will have a look at the provision code for the Samba DC to see what
it actually does when you use '--use-rfc2307', if it just adds
'ypServ30.ldif', I will setup a test domain without '--use-rfc2307' and
see what happens ;-)
