Good catch Rich!  This is as a result of the change between
smbldap-tools-0.8.5 to 0.8.6.  They changed the location of the
smbldap-tools executables from /usr/local/sbin to /opt/IDEALX/sbin.  I let
Matt know and hopefully he can create a new version with the fix in the
next day or so.  If I can figure out which template it pulls from...I'll
fix it myself before I test again this a.m.  In the meantime....anyone
playing with now....in the section of smb.conf where the smbldap-tools
paths are set out....change /usr/local/sbin to /opt/IDEALX/sbin.
