It *is* a rather annoying restriction. FWIW I think you can get away with just 
having a user entry in /var/smb/smbpasswd on the server with the rest of the 
user's details coming from LDAP. I'm not sure if that's a bug or not, but it is 

So if there was a way to build the smbpasswd file without using passwd(1) and 
its partner in crime pam_smb_passwd.so that might well do the job.
