[Samba] RE: Winbind on HPUX11, Totally Stuck, Please Help

I've been trying to find a solution to passwd not working on HPUX 11
with a modified nsswitch.conf.  (Interestingly, using the -r files
switch works on Solaris, but not HPUX.)

The two proposed workarounds I have seen (naming the module ldap and
replacing the system one, or creating a wrapper for passwd that fiddles
with the nsswitch.conf) aren't acceptable.

I'm really hoping that HP has fixed this, but I wasn't able to locate an
applicable patch on their site.  If anyone knows of one, please point me
to it!
