    We are also finding that users that we enter manually, when 
attempting to login: if we enter the correct password we get and error 
messages that the user cannot be logged in due to error C000189. If the 
password is entered incorrectly we get the standard message that the 
user could not be entered check the password and the user Id.  This 
different behavior when the correct password and an incorrect password 
are entered indicates to me that it is seeing the password it's just 
doesn't isn't handling it correctly when entered correctly.  The test 
computer was an NT4 computer.
