[Samba] Winbind vs pam_krb5/nss_ldap

I've installed samba+winbind for 2k users. I had set up my stations tu use
winbind for all, and the backend used is ldap.
Now with a little more infos, I will probably change the authentification on
computers to use krb5 + credential caching, so ppl will get a kerberos ticket
and get SSO like for windows users.
For changing their password, it works with kerberos, with "kpasswd user at REALM"
What isn't working is the "change password at first login" set up by windows,
but I didn't get further into that, only removed that.
