[Samba] pdbedit "password must change" not following policy

Thank you all for the info, I'm seeing the same thing on my systems (newer
version of samba does have net sam change minimum password age, older one
does not).

So my problem still stands, pdbedit -P "maximum password age" shows 90 days,
as far as that is concerned it's correct, but for whatever reason, it's not
adding that 90 days from the "password last set" date to get the "password
must change" field, so most accounts are locked out, because the "password
must change" date is older then the "password last set" date... there must
be some config or setting on the server somewhere causing this, I just
haven't a clue where (I've looked quite a lot).
