Password changes from Win98 failing as well

I have now seen password change attempts fail from Win98 as well as Win95
and am wondering if anyone else has as well.

I am in Singaport at the moment and cannot check much out, but during my
Samba tutorial yesterday (1 day of talking to up to 100 people) I tried to
change password (encrypted passwords in use) and it failed saying that my
old password was wrong.

So, I really need to see a trace of password changing, and I guess I will
have to look at what happens when Win9X tries to change password against an
NT Server as well.
