OpenLDAP password change issues...

I'm dealing with an OpenLDAP server running on Solaris 8.
When a user attempts to change their LDAP password from a command line,
Linux or Solaris it completes with an
all tokens updated. If I try logging in with this new password it does not
work. If I try logging in with the previous password it also does not work.
If I login to Webmin and manually change the LDAP user's password it will
begin working again.
I noticed in the password field, after I had attempted changing the
password, it had a $1 after the (crypt) line.
Before I changed the password the "crypt" line did not contain a $1.
It would appear that "passwd" is encrypting the users password differently
into LDAP then webmin is.
Any help would be much appreciated.
