Yes I've seen this solution in the archives. Unfortunately, I need this
feature turned on, samba isn't the only service running on this server
requiring a login.
Any other possibilities that don't involve turning off unix password sync?
At this point I'm REALLY open to suggestions :)

no one seems to like our solution, but we turned off _all_ windows->linux
linux->windows password changes from the windows/linux session
and just made a web page that sets both - it takes a lot of crap out of the
equation and also lets us sync our email and web passwords at the
same time - just a thought
