As already explained on this list, the 2:3.4.2-1~bpo50+2 package fixes
this for samba.
For libpam-smbpass, the next version will fix this but, in the
meantime, you can force dpkg to ignore depends. That's not really
recommended, but in this specific case, it can save you time and avoid
waiting for the fixed package.
