I think ldap passwd sync changes also the unix_password when I change my
Password under Windows. 
But I want to change my sambaNTpassword and sambaLMpassword und Unix.
So, when I do a "passwd horst" I want to change the Unix_password AND the
sambaNTpassword and the sambaLMpassword 
For the user "horst".

So, it doesn't matter where I change my password (unix or Windows), all my
passwords are changed.
