Is it possible that the user's account has expired under NT?

It turns out that the underlying problem is that PAM_SMB has to map the NT username to a local username. It seems that the module has no support for wildcards, and I don't want to create an unmanageable list of all the domain users. (The list would have to be updated every time someone was added or deleted from the domain.)

As far as I can tell, there are two choices:

-- Hack the module to support wildcards (e.g. ALL NT users -> "default" or "anonymous" locally)
-- Create ~400 local users, or create the aforementioned list.


Neither choice sounds like a clean solution. Any suggestions?
