Nope, but according to the docs anyway, when doing a unix password sync, 
Samba as root calls the passwd command.  So in terms of root operating 
the passwd command, it won't obey password charateristic restrictions 
anyway as root changing passwords overrides that anyway (at least on the 
Linux system I'm using it on).  Thanks for the suggestion though :)

John Terpstra double checked my configuration off-list and he could also 
reproduce the problem and suggested I file a bug report (which I've done).
