Hi again!

I've installed the smbldap-tools 0.6 package on my system.  I've
modified /usr/local/sbin/smb*conf.pm and changed the $suffix and
$bindpasswd to reflect what I've at the server.

I've then added a user to the system with "smbldap-useradd.pl -m user".
When I run smbldap-passwd.pl, I get the following error message:

[root at teich smbldap-tools]# smbldap-passwd.pl Admin
Changing password for Admin
New password : 
Retype new password :

Any ideas about what's going wrong here?
