 I have a problem in which the Windows client isn't allowed to change the
password in a direct manner. Using the Windows control panel, Passwords, I
am only allowed to change the password by first changing the
existing password to a blank password and then changing the blank
password to the desired password. 

 If I try to change the password directly I generate the error
  check_oem_password: incorrect password length (2143573292)."
in the clients log.

 I am using Slackware 7.1 and Samba-2.0.7. Any help would be greatly
