He said above he is running OSF/1 4.0 (Digital Unix).  I too am running
Digital UNIX and have the same problem.  I can use the smbpasswd program
just fine, but when I try to change the password using the Win95 password
control panel, I get a core dump.  I sent a gdb trace, log file etc, but
this hasn't been fixed.  I think the short answer is that "Win95 password
changing is not supported under Digital Unix".
