Took some finding, but I am now very sure that the opensuse Samba AD DC
uses MIT instead of Heimdal, so this makes it inadvisable to use in
production. There are just too many problems to make it usable, the
password problem being one of them.

I am sorry, but, as far as I am aware, there is no RPM based distro
that has production ready Samba packages, I also have a feeling that
the Ubuntu packages now use MIT, so this really just leaves Debian etc.
