[Samba] Password Sync problems

I've set up Samba 2.2.6pre2 with ssl, pam, pam_smbpass and ldap on a 
Solaris 9 server. Everything works fine in unix. However I cannot change 
passwords from a Windoze client (win98) which has successfully logged in 
to the samba domain. It seems that the password chat asks for the LDAP 
password of the user, which would be ther user's old password. But 
according to the docs, smbpasswd is called as root and it assumes that 
it is able to change the password indefinately. In the html help files 
however, the example did show a %o field which supposedly sends the old 
password. But this does not work. Can anyone shed some light on this?
