i've modified the smbpasswd command so that, as root, you can do (
smbpasswd -add user [password]
this will change the password for user unconditionally.
and (again, as root):
this will change the password for user _without_ asking for their old
password. particularly as it's not very helpful to ask for an old
password when it's matched with XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX!
has anyone reversed the 32 Xs into an actual password that, when typed
in, gives 32 Xs? :-)
