Strange entry inthe log when using encrypted passwords

I want to set up my Samba-servers to use encrypted passwords (smbpasswd).
First I enabled "Update Encrypted" to set the correct password and then I
disabled "Update encrypted" and enabled "encrypted passwords".

When I map up a share from the client everything is working ok, but in the
log I have the following:

[1999/11/09 21:37:10, 1] smbd/password.c:(532)
  smb_password_check failed. Invalid password given for user 'thoree'
[1999/11/09 21:37:10, 1] smbd/service.c:(521)
  pc-transcend ( connect to service thoree as user thoree
(uid=725, gid=33)
 (pid 10279)

It seems to me that the client first sends an incorrect password, but then
sends the correct. Is this normal?
