In the case of LDAP password sync You need no passwd program as far as i 
know. Samba should chancge it through LDAP interface and it was doing it 
till some date... I'll try at days to set up older versions of samba an 
will post the results.

No, I'm not using it. I add users to LDAP and then do "smbpasswd -a".

PS. (to Mark Sarria) I've replied to my e-mail because I haven't see 
your at list. May be because You CC it to me and list ignored it.
