[Samba] Samba3 + LDAP - w2k says it couldn't change password (but it did)

I have a following test environment:

1) Samba PDC + OpenLDAP Slave (
2) OpenLDAP Master (

Whatever is changed/added on the Master, it gets replicated to Slave.

Now, when a user is logged in, and tries to change the password - he/she must supply the old password, and twice new one (normal behaviour).

After pressing OK the user is said that the password wasn't changed, check BIG/small characters etc. (although old password and new were correctly typed).

However, the password was changed in LDAP master, and replicated to the slave - so after a logout, user can log in with a new password (though this user was said that the password wasn't changed).

This is what I have in log.machine with log level = 9:

[2004/11/02 15:24:20, 0] libsmb/smbencrypt.c:decode_pw_buffer(519)
  decode_pw_buffer: incorrect password length (-954408756).
[2004/11/02 15:24:20, 0] libsmb/smbencrypt.c:decode_pw_buffer(520)
  decode_pw_buffer: check that 'encrypt passwords = yes'

The log is the same whether I have "encrypt passwords = yes" or don't have it at all.

Any clue?
