I suspect there is something else going on here. NTLM credentials
aren't cached by the client. If you're running on IIS it could be that
a different authentication type is being chosen in some cases. Also,
it could be that when setting the password in AD the NTLM keys were not
updated because of policy or an option was incorrecty set. I would make
sure the user changes their password and then logs off and back in. Then
relaunch the browser and try again.
