[ale] smbpasswd error

If any user but root tries to run smbpasswd, it goes through the whole
old password, new password, new password again, stuff. Then it fails

machine rejected the password change: Error was : RAP86: The
specified password is invalid.

I Googled all day yesterday on this and Samba team had seen it back
around 2.2. This is version 3.0. But there was no information on what to
do to fix it?!

I do have "sync unix and samba passwords" and I don't see a chat script
issue with that.

I suspect a pam issue with password changes but am unclear on how pam
interacts with samba password stuff.
