Workstation Trust Accounts

Hi there,
I have a really ugly problem, which, as I know is partially selfmade.
But to the problem:
I have five servers running samba-2.2.3a-12 (latest Debian Woody
release) which are controlled by one master server. All of the five
servers act as pdc for an own nt-domain. Now to keep the administrative
work as low as possible I have this one master server. Via this server
we/our customer adds/deletes all user accounts. This works as expected
and cvs is my friend here. The users can change their passwords via nt,
because the scripts for "passwd program" manage this part. But (!) now
our machines start to change their workstation trust account "passwords"
and for this I found no possibility to execute a script if this happens.
Does anyone of you know how I can handle this problem? And I don't want
to update to samba 3.0 with ldap (as in: [1]).
