password issue winbind + ssh


I have a working Win2k3 Active Directory Server + RHEL4 configuration. The users can log in using ssh with their AD user. But users with special characters (like ,?,,...) in their passwords can't log in. The only thing I can see in the logfiles:

pam_winbind[17654]: request failed, but PAM error 0!
pam_winbind[17654]: internal module error (retval = 3, user = `test')
Are there known problems with passwords with special characters?
