- raising the samba debug level to 100 and setting passwd chat debug 
  = true. 
- doing "su - <dummy-user>", changing his password, realizing that it 
- lowering the debug level again, switching of passwd chat debug off
- doing "su - <dummy-user> again, realizint it is still working

Well, 2 or 3 day later a user arives and reportes problems and is 
sure that the new passwd fulfills all the rules.

- I try it again, it is not working and the above is repeated.

But I haven't looked at it deeper.

see above, I don't think so.
The dummy-user is a normel user, just not deleted when he left us.

Haven't captured a failier yet.
