OS X 10.8.2 fix for Active Directory lockouts

Robert Sandoval asked a question about Mountain Lion clients being locked out of Active Directory when users attempt to log in. Apple's 10.8.2 update from may fix this issue, but an apparent typo in Apple's article makes it sound like the opposite is true. Sandoval reported:

Our Mountain Lion users (OS X 10.8.1) sometimes can't log into Active Directory. When attempting to login, the user finds that the account is locked out, as if he had used up his multiple attempts. The users say they are using the correct login credentials. The problem is intermittent and doesn't happen most of the time, and occurs with all of our Macs regardless of model.
Apple tech support article HT5460, which describes the 10.8.2 update, seems to say that the update causes the problem: "Addresses an issue that may prevent Active Directory accounts from being locked out" Most likely, this is supposed to say "Addresses an issue that may CAUSE Active Directory accounts TO BE locked out." Have you seen this problem? If so, if the 10.8.2 fixes it.
