I have same situation. Samba 3.5 Ubuntu 11.10. 

When user login in
their linux account (desktop environment, or via ssh, or whatever...)
samba password is reset to linux password. This is very annoying if
you wish to keep different passwords.

Can anybody tell me what mechanism set samba password same as
linux password, when user login?
