I'm using samba-2.0.0beta1.
When trying to change a password as a non-root user with smbpasswd I get
the following message from smbpasswd:
machine 127.0.0.1 rejected the password change: Error was : The specified
password is invalid.
and the following message in log.smb:
[1998/11/20 14:36:49, 0] smbd/chgpasswd.c:check_oem_password(684)
check_oem_password: incorrect password length (1780921600).
Whoa! I didn't type that many characters in my password! :-)
Is this a known problem? Is there a fix in a later alpha?
