> The passwd program must be setuid root. Are you explicitly passing the user name to smbpasswd? Otherwise smbpasswd probably just get's uid (which would be root).

	I'm not working on the source... according to Sun's license, I'm
not allowed to see it (only about 5 people on campus are).  I asked about
this though, and the guy who is working on it said he set the uid and gid
to the user before exec'ing smbpasswd.
