Well, I've got a user with no userPassword but a sambaLMPassword and 
sambaNTPassword, and he is not able to use smbclient:

furnsrv:/usr/local/sbin # smbclient -L localhost -U carl1
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

If I give no password it works:
furnsrv:/usr/local/sbin # smbclient -L localhost -U carl1
Anonymous login successful
Domain=[FURN] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.8]

So maybe it is not meant to use userPassword but it sure does appear to 
be.  :/
