I used samba2.0.x on:
A	caldera1.3 kernel 2.0.33 libc5
B	rh60, 2.2.x, glibc21

On A all works ok.
On B I get the very same error (Cannot Allocate pty) if I disable UNIX
PTY and work with "old" tty. With pty enabled the error goes away and
password-sync works as expected.
Already posted about this to samba-bugs.

If you _do_ use pty and get the error, then there must be something else
going on :-)
