Hello David,

unfortunately no answer to your question - but once I had the same
problem and I've used http://www.karylstein.com/phpLdapPasswd
successfully with a bit of hacking (I can't remember exactly what was
not working but there were a few patches in the search results when
googling for phpLdapPasswd).

Another alternative would be to use more mature LDAP Account
management web utils:

- phpLdapAdmin (don't know if it supports user login & change Samba
password hash)

Hope that helps!
