Our users change their passwords using the original Win2K password
change mechanisms (Ctrl+Alt+Del -> Change Password). If one of the users
changes his password and the new one is shorter then 5 characters it is
rejected. This appears in the logfile and that's OK so far but the users
don't get notified. They think the password has changed and use the new

Why is that? Could it be this is a config thing?

We're using Samba 2.2.3a on Debian GNU/Linux.
