[Samba] smbpasswd - root can change, but no-one else

Judy Lin describes a problem whereby an smbpasswd could be changed by root 
but not by a user, also well documented by Dan Kirkpatrick at 
- but Judy reckons she found out what was wrong and fixed it before anyone 
responded, and Dan didn't.

I have exactly the same problem and can't find a fix anywhere else.

Has this been resolved anywhere? Thanks.  I'm running samba 2.2.8a-107.
