That's normal for a case where the user does not exist at all
in the unix /etc/passwd file - they must exist as unix users first.
I think the webmin 'convert' case should involve users who are
in /etc/passwd but not yet in /etc/samba/smbpasswd. If you don't
get an error in that case, then I don't see why webmin should
fail either.
