[Samba] USRMGR issues, net rpc ... OK

I have Samba 3.0.10 set up with ldapsam (OpenLDAP 2.2.13) and 
smbldap-tools 0.8.8, using start tls.

Account info etc. is read properly from ldap, and 
adding/removing/modifying users with the "net" command works fine.

Oddly, if I try to use USRMGR, for instance, to add a user, only the posix 
account gets created (by the smbldap-tools script) but the samba sam 
account add fails with the following error:

[2005/05/05 16:19:56, 1] passdb/pdb_ldap.c:ldapsam_modify_entry(1516)
  ldapsam_modify_entry: Failed to modify user dn= 
uid=johntest,ou=People,dc=mydomain,dc=com with: Strong(er) authentication 
        modifications require authentication

  ldapsam_add_sam_account: failed to modify/add user with uid = johntest

  could not add user/computer johntest to passdb.  Check permissions?

Any ideas?
