We do not have code to do that now (although we have some code in 3.0
that is capable of doing that so it is technically possible), but this
shouldn't happen in the first place.

Do you have any information about how the password was changed by these
users ?

Are you allowing samba to change the password ?

If so are you using the option 'ldap sync only = Only' ? If you do not
use this setting that is most likely the problem.
If you do then it may be a bug in samba.

Have you given samba access for writing to the sambaNTPassword
attribute ?
(you shouldn't samba should be allowed only to read).
