[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#520012: samba: net rpc vampire sets wrong passwords for machine accounts

I am setting up a PDC with Lenny, and i have tried to run a "net rpc vampire" against a NT4 PDC. The vampire process seems to fail to get machine account passwords, even if it gets the machine accounts themselves (the entries get created properly in /etc/passwd and in samba auth database).
The result is that if I want to make the clients connect to the domain after switching to the new DC (Samba) I have to rejoin every client to the domain, which is impossibile since we have more than 150 clients here.
I have searched for this bug, and found something on the Samba list (the url of a copy of the messages is here: http://www.nabble.com/net-rpc-vampire-in-release-3.2.x-td19180372.html) even if it is not clear about which version they are talking about.
I have searched for the bug on the Samba bug tracking system, but I came up with only this: https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5722. The problem seems to be the same, but no solution.
This bug makes it impossibile to use the "net rpc vampire" command at all.
I will attach later the output of the vampire command, separated in two files, standard output and standard error. You will see that there are a lots of errors regarding machine account creations.
