[Bug 261952] [NEW] passwd does not work whith special smb.conf options (maybe a libpam-smbpass bug?)

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: libpam-smbpass

I found out that I could not change my password (as root) with passwd when the smb.conf options    
   passdb backend = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
was set.

and:
an 'adduser <username>' command created an entry in /etc/shaddow but with missing encrypted password.

this also affects login (of existing users), so I guess some libpam-
smbpass bug prevent the passwd program from correctly processing the
password input.

message from auth.log
passwd[18790]: pam_smbpass(passwd:chauthtok): unrecognized option [missingok]

maybe a similar bug:
http://osdir.com/ml/debian.packages.adduser.devel/2006-10/msg00038.html


but with the following (similar) smb.conf option things worked:
   smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd

message for that from auth.log
Aug 27 20:02:32 deep2 passwd[18899]: pam_smbpass(passwd:chauthtok): unrecognized option [missingok]
Aug 27 20:02:40 deep2 passwd[18899]: pam_unix(passwd:chauthtok): password changed for root
Aug 27 20:02:40 deep2 passwd[18899]: pam_smbpass(passwd:chauthtok): unrecognized option [missingok]
Aug 27 20:02:40 deep2 passwd[18899]: pam_smbpass(passwd:chauthtok): password for (root/0) changed by (root/0)
