I've tried and tried.. So, finally I set the log level to debug and this
shows up, nothing else, when I try to change passwords:
[2004/01/29 12:17:31, 0] lib/util_sec.c:assert_gid(114)
Failed to set gid privileges to (0,65533) now set to (0,-1) uid=(0,65534)
[2004/01/29 12:17:31, 0] lib/util.c:smb_panic(1094)
PANIC: failed to set gid
I don't have a clue to where I should start looking..
