the OS is debian testing (bullseye); the message is displayed on the 
console just after a successfully (local or ssh) log on but is shown 
even after a successfully log on in GDM. I've found no expiring 
meassages on the logs...

if I log on using a local account no password expiry messages are shown 
but if I log on using an AD user account the expiry password message is 
displayed... so I thought was a samba problem ?) Any way do you have 
some suggestion to debug the problem and found the guilty?

Best regards
