[Samba] smbpasswd and RID values

This is version 2.2.3a
The error doesn't really bother me much as everything still seems to
work fine but the less errors in the log file the better :)
Another thing I noticed that I couldn't manage to create an LDIF file
for a samba-only user without having to use the posixAccount
objectclass. smbpasswd doesn't change the password for a samba-only user
with an error similar to "We couldn't find user <username>"
Once I added the posixAccount objectClass for the samba-only user with
the required attribute types (cn, uid, home directory, etc) it then
successfully changed the password for the user. Bug?
