for smbldap-passwd.pl to be called, you need to add  in smb.conf :
'unix password sync = Yes'
I know this is strange for ldap backend, but the man page said that.
Next, you need to patch smbldap-passwd.pl (in 3 different places) so that
you have only the <STDIN> between "stty -echo" and "stty echo".
For example:

system "stty -echo";
system "stty echo";
print "\n";

and not
system "stty -echo";
print "\n";
system "stty echo";

i am sorry, i can't send a patch because i don't have old sources with me
