Sorry - forgot to mention that  had that in ther the whole time.
for posterity  - my working config (with double password prompting) 
uses this system-auth file.

auth        sufficient    /lib/security/ likeauth nullok md5 shadow
auth        required      /lib/security/
account     sufficient    /lib/security/
account     required      /lib/security/
password    required      /lib/security/ retry=3
password    required      /lib/security/ nullok use_authtok 
password    required      /lib/security/ nullok use_authtok md5 
#password    required      /lib/security/
session     required      /lib/security/
session     required      /lib/security/

a symlink 
/etc/smbpasswd -> /etc/samba/smbpasswd 
is also required to make this work.

I'm about ready to give up on the double password prompt problem for now...
