[Samba] Can't change password change dates with PDBEDIT

I'm setting up a Samba server using CentOS 4's (RedHat Enterprise Linux)
standard version (v.3.0101411). I want to be able to force users to
change their password upon first logging in and to have to change them
after a certain period of time (per user, not system-wide).
The problem is that the pdbedit commands don't seem to be registering at
all in the database. If I enter the following command:
pdbedit --pwd-must-change-time="2010-01-01" --time-format="%Y-%m-%d"
I still get:
Password last set: Fri, 16 Mar 2007 10:02:06 GMT
Password can change: Fri, 16 Mar 2007 10:02:06 GMT
Password must change: Mon, 18 Jan 2038 22:14:07 GMT
How do I control login times?
(I'm moving from a Novel Netware server where these kind of
administration tasks were very easy. I'm disappointed that it is taking
me so long to get this done.)
