Using Samba 3.07 i wanna the passwd program to be run as the user.
Is this possible ?

Here's my smb.conf the general section of my smb.conf.

log level = 100
passwd program = passwd %u
passwd chat = *old*password*%o\n *new*password*%n\n *new*password*%n\n *
passwd chat debug = true
unix password sync = yes

Doing it this way forces samba to change it as root, and this is giving me 
another problem.
