Yes, it works fine on my test system that has a current cvs. Your problem
may be that you are trying to change to a password that is not suitable, ie
not enough letters, too similar etc. Because samba uses the system passwd
command to change passwords and then tries to capture the response, it
makes no attempt to look at why a change attemt fails, it just sees
anything that does not look like success  as failure and tell the NT that
'something' did not work.
