Works for me (Samba 2.2.3a-5mdk binary - that is, 2.2.3a plus printer
settings patch).

I can change the password from Windows clients (Ctrl-Alt-Delete>Change
Password) and from the Linux command line, very responsive, no problems.

Mine is
*New*password* %n\n *new*password* %n\n *updated*

which works on Mandrake 8.0 (+various updates)

Good luck,
