[Samba] Password syncing

I have searched and searched but haven't found any responses on the the
list for this problem.
I am using Samba 2.2.8. I use Kerberos 5 with ldap for the system
accounts. I am just learning about kerberos and ldap, so I am by no means
any expert. I plan on trying to use the Samba with ldap HOWTO later on but
I wanted to get the initial services working first.
I have configured PAM so that when passwd is run, it successfully changes
the kerberos password and the samba password at the same time. I noticed
that it really doesn't care what the samba password is set to, it just
overwrites anything that is already in the smbpasswd file.
I also have successfully configured Samba to change the samba password from
the windows client (using the change password feature in
Ctrl-Alt-Del). The only way I could get the password change from the
client to work was to set "unix password sync = no" but I would like the
functionality of this, so that when a user changes their samba password
from the client, it changes both of the passwords.
Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this?
