I've had exactly the same problem with XP Pro WS after the latest patches
from Redmond it's just that samba was 2.2.8a. I've upgraded to 3.0.2 (as
distributed by RedHAt Enterprise)... No luck. Finally I've downloaded and
compiled 3.0.3; same. On 2.2.8a I was using smbpasswd, in the 3.0.x attempts
I've used LDAP. Same symptoms, one "blindly" changes the password while
getting an error message.
