"whether Samba attempts to synchronize the UNIX password with the SMB password when the encrypted SMB password in the smbpasswd file is changed".
It can mean 8 combinations of '(smbd|"") and (pdbedit|"") and (smbpasswd|"")'.
"the passwd program[here is a missing space - a typo]parameter is called AS ROOT"
it isn't clear what programs do call passwd program. smbpasswd? pdbedit? smbbd?
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
