Yep, Dave, I'm on it.  Just hadn't had a chance to reply yet.  Silly
day job getting in the way... ;)

Which version of the Samba/LDAP Installer are you using?

The beta (now gamma) version has some changes that could have made
a difference.  I've updated the site to mention this; sorry that
wasn't clear before.  8-o  ( http://majen.net/smbldap/ )

I've started adding in quota support (assisted by Brian Chivers), and
that's added a new input field to smbldap-useradd-bulk.  So your
password field may very well be misinterpreted.

BTW, I'll also mention that if you want to create all your users with
the same default password, you can change the smbldap-useradd-bulk
line in the Makefile from this:

users: $(START)
		$(PERL) create-usernames -a -i -f $(START) -o $(NAMES)
		$(PERL) smbldap-useradd-bulk -f $(NAMES) -o $(FINISH)

to this:
$(PERL) smbldap-useradd-bulk -p default=password -f $(NAMES) -o $(FINISH)

That will give each user the password "password".

I expect that it is.

How do you prompt for a pw change at first login?  Does that happen on
every platform?
