 No, but it's not spam.  If your read smb.conf(5) and search for "add user",
you'll see that it's about keeping user accounts on the samba server in sync
with NT/win2000 usernames.  The suggestion looks useful for solving the
problem of adding windows 2000 machines to a domain, which I don't remember
anyone asking about, but it probably happened...

 Anyway, thanks mr. happy.
