Re: [Samba] Is RODC password replication different from the windows version by design or is it a bug?

Its just a bug, I expect there will be a fix soon.

In terms of 'experimental code' the best way to help test Samba's new
features is to run git master and give us feedback or at least to run
our release candidates.  While we hesitate to suggest running
unreleased code in production, sadly these are so rarely used in
production-like environments that we get supprises like this when
releases come out. 

We do write extensive tests Samba's features, particularly when new
features are added or bugs are fixed, but the biggest challenges are in
the 'unknown unknowns', areas we didn't know were not tested.
