password sync in 1.9.18p4

I had given NIS access to the Windows NT domain users via Samba
1.9.18p3. The Samba gateway worked great when the users on the NT domain
had the same username & password on both the NT PDC as well as the NIS.
I have now set up Samba 1.9.18.p4 with server security & password sync
turned on. The server specified is my NT PDC. Users get full access to
the NIS & the NT with single logon & authentication works fine. However
the passwords refuse to sync when the user changes his password at
either end.
I understood from the p4 documentation that this should have worked. Did
I understand wrong or have I screwed up somewhere ? Can someone please
help ?
