I have suggested that we deprecate the NT4-style domains, but one of
the other Samba team members wants to keep them. I find this strange
for several reasons, smbldap-tools is dead and no longer maintained,
Microsoft keeps breaking them and the client code hasn't really worked
for some time now. The vast majority of the Samba effort is aimed
squarely at AD domains, trying to get somebody to fix your problem is
going to take some time, especially as it works with AD.
