[Samba] [Urgent] Cannot make changes via pdbedit

I have been having some problems since I updated from Samba 3.0.23 to 
3.0.25b. I have installed the latest version of smbldap-tools but I am 
still not able to make certain changes to a user's account. I have 
created a new user named JROLFE.
After I set up a new user, I will set it so they are required to change 
their password when they first login. I usually do this through LDAP 
Account Manager.
I set User can change password to a date in the past and User must 
change password to a date in the past. But for some reason it didn't 
work. If I run pdbedit -Lv -u jrolfe, I get:

    Password last set:    Mon, 01 Jan 2007 03:00:00 EST
    Password can change:  Mon, 08 Jan 2007 03:00:00 EST
    Password must change: never

If I run ../smbldap-usershow jrolfe, I get:

    sambaPwdCanChange: 1183795200
    sambaPwdLastSet: 1167638400
    sambaPwdMustChange: 1167638400

The unix times converted to english are: Sat, 07 Jul 2007 08:00:00 GMT 
and Mon, 01 Jan 2007 08:00:00 GMT. So you can see that the dates do not 
match between pdbedit and smbldap-tools.
This is really causing a problem because I am trying to set up a new 
user and cannot get his password to expire.
