Steve and Andrew,

  Thanks for your PAM patch. it works perfectly now. I have two notes

  First, in Solaris 2.6, PAM_AUTHTOK_RECOVER_ERR is
PAM_AUTHTOK_RECOVERY_ERR. I don't know about other system's PAM interface.
But at least we have a speical case here.

  The next thing is that I noticed Andrew have added PAM password change
in the patch. Because I am running Samba in a NIS+ slave and I have
already developed custom external programs to do the password changing. So
I need an easy way to disable PAM password changing (but still keeping PAM
authentication) so that I can still use the password chat. I propose to
modify the parsing of the configuration parameter "passwd program" so that
when it is = PAM, we use pam for password changing, otherwise, use the
given command. Any idea?
