When I first ran into this, I had already used Windows Explorer to map a
drive letter to a file server in the non-trusted domain.  However,
"mkpasswd" did not use that existing SMB session.  Instead it was
sending an SMB Session Setup with the "domain\user" for my local console
login, not the account I used to map the drive letter.  I also believe
it was being sent to the DC, not the file server I mapped a drive
letter, to.

Now, maybe if I map a drive letter directly to the DC, that might do it.
