Similar to Bug 3006945, the Samba module does not create a new samba user properly.
Samba is setup as default, using tdbsam for password backend.
Based on configuration file, this is not a pdbedit issue as smbpasswd is defined as the password utility.
It seems that the module is not using the -a flag for adding new users with the command "smbpasswd".
However, the module does manually edit the file "smbpasswd" to add the user and therefore subsequently believe the user was added. This error becomes obvious when user has problem accessing shares and/or trying to set a password will result in access violation error. Using command line to issue the smbpasswd command reveals that user was not added to the database.
Using the bundled SWAT module to add the user will solve the problem and subsequently Webmin will be able to change the password.
