Greetings Jan ...

POSIX password?

"password databases"
	Okay, when responding to your message, I decied to do a quick 
test.  I thought that when you ran smbpasswd to change the 
ntPassword and lmPassword, I thought that is would also 
change the userPassword ... seeing that this would be a good 
way to debug password change problems ... but I don't know 
how Windows with change the password, or if smbpasswd would 
be able to simulate the change ... seeing that I have had 
problems changing passwords.

	Thanks for getting me to do this test, which means now that I 
have a problem with changing passwords.  I am going to have 
to look into this.
