[Samba] Your password expires today problem

Hi,

I currently migrate an existant earlier SAMBA (Version 2.2.9) / OpenLDAP
(slapd 2.2.26) configuration to SAMBA (Version 3.0.25b-0.4E.6) /
OpenLDAP (slapd 2.4.11).

To preserve the compatibility with my schema.v2, my new smb.conf now
contains :
passdb backend = ldapsam_compat:ldap://w.x.y.z:389
(where w.x.y.z is the ldap server)
Simultaneously, for same reason, i kept uncommented the historical
section of my samba schema.v3 on my ldap server.
I can either ask my domain and ldap server, that's OK
I can insert and remove machines in/from my domain, i can authenticate
users too, BUT each times i've got the problem with the message :
"Your password expires today" when connecting from microsoft windows
xp-client.

I' ve tried the envisageables solutions, read on this list, but so far
without result :

# net groupmap list
[2010/04/29 10:59:05, 0] param/loadparm.c:map_parameter(2765)
  Unknown parameter encountered: "maximum password age"
[2010/04/29 10:59:05, 0] param/loadparm.c:lp_do_parameter(3505)
  Ignoring unknown parameter "maximum password age"

# pdbedit -P "maximum password age" -C 4294967294
Unknown parameter encountered: "maximum password age"
Ignoring unknown parameter "maximum password age"
valid account policy, but unable to fetch value!
account policy "maximum password age" description: Maximum password age,
in seconds (default: -1 => never expire passwords)
account policy "maximum password age" value was: 4294967295
valid account policy, but unable to set value!

# pdbedit -r -c "[X ]" -u martin
Unknown parameter encountered: "maximum password age"
Ignoring unknown parameter "maximum password age"
Unix username: martin
NT username: martin
Account Flags: [UX ]
...

What is wrong on my configuration?
Thanks for helping.
Best regards

François
