Set passwd chat debug to yes - this will log any passwd stuff into smbd.log
at level 100.
See what the output is when you change the passwd of a user.
Looking on google finds this as passwd chat scripts:
*new*password* %n\n *new*password* %n\n *changed*
It may or may not work. Write down exactly what is diplayed on screen when
you change passwd for a user (as root). Then post that here.
