I did some experiments last summer but it was quite disapointing.
Even if a password change is rejected by the LDAP server, the windows
workstation reports success, in addition it caches the suposedly new
password which poses some further problems.
Please let me know if you make some progress.

BTW be careful with 'ldap passwd sync = only'
