Dazu meine Meinung:

I implemented a password filter dll that runs on a NT4 PDC. No
matter what client OS (Win9x, NT, 2k) generated the password
change request, the password filter always got the new cleartext
password. Off course not the old one :-) So if You dont't fear to
change the user's password _as root_ You are fine.

Just my 2 cents,
