Whenever the shadow password is updated, shadowLastChange should get
updated too.

Unfortunately, my computer appears to be ignoring shadow password
expiry at the moment (it was working...), so I am unable to test the
same scenario that caused me grief before.

I am able to confirm though, if the Samba password has expired, and I
change the password on log in, it updates both the Samba and Shadow
passwords, but it does not update shadowLastChange.
