[Samba] Bug - Forcing password change with Samba 3.4.x ?

since upgrade to samba 3.4.9 samba seems to ignore the LDAP attribute "sambaPwdMustChange" for forcing password changes.
Is that a bug or were there some changes? I can not find a hint.

Samba log (log level 10) does not show any errors.

How can I check, if samba ignores the attribute? pdbedit does show "never". Is this the same attribute?
