Win 98 password changes - Samba doesn't recognise data

No, it's not a case of the password programs (ie, passwd) being incorrect at
the samba end, it's deeper than that - the smbd log says

[2000/03/13 12:50:34, 0] smbd/chgpasswd.c:check_oem_password(699)
  check_oem_password: incorrect password length (-1423948563).

So the actual data sent by win 98 appears to be unrecognised by Samba
We are running Win 98 second addition 4.10.2222 A.

Any help with this problem would be appreciated.
