i knew it - (no na) ;-)
my heavy situation is, that the chat expects [New password: ] and receives
[New password: ] , but it says no match
following row is from the log:

   expect: expected [New password: ] received [New password: ] match no

this is my problem! is there a bug or is my config faulty:

   passwd chat = New\spassword:\s %n\n Re-enter\snew\spassword:\s %n\n
   passwd program = /etc/ldappwdsmb %u

the programm ldappwdsmb is a script which calls ldappasswd as root!

would it be possible to send me your configfiles to compare with mine? in
my opinion, there's only one little mistake that let the sync crash!

i saw mails from lists where persons told about working group-map with
earlier versions as 2.2.3 (!), but maybe i'm wrong!
