The problem with computers in AD domain is that they are just users with 
an extra objectclass, so, as far as Samba is concerned, they are users.
In an ldap search you can filter them out, perhaps Samba needs to do 
this as standard, unless they need to be a user (for some unknown 
reason, some people do want this). Of course this may be what is 
supposed to happen (don't ask me about 'C') and something has gone wrong.
