Update: Password server rejecting passwords.

Hello again,

	Since I last posted to the mailing list concerning changing
network passwords from Windows 95 boxes, I upgraded all the SAMBA servers
to 1.9.18p2.  Changing the password from Control Panel->Passwords still
_does not work_.  However, changing it from a DOS command prompt using
"NET PASSWORD" works, partially.  I can change the password once, but if I
try to change it again it fails.  The log file on the password server
reveals the following error message:

check_lanman_password: old password doens't match.

(Thats a direct cut 'n paste, so yes there is a typo in that error message

	Anybody have any ideas?
