This works for me in 3.0.x.  I actually didn't know until yesterday because I 
forgot to test it, and I had a user call me and ask "How do I change my 
password?"  I told them, crossed my fingers, and it worked.  I did not even 
have to put anything special in smb.conf, just "pam passwd change = yes" and 
"ldap passwd sync = yes" which would be replaced by "unix password sync = 
yes" if you are using /etc/passwd backend.
