The lanmanager smbpasswd filed change seems to happen also with some
client machines do NOT explicitaly change their password.
It rather seems that a client seems to enforce a zero LANMAN passwd if a client
has a higher than LANMAN protocol available.
"I have a higher protocol than LANMAN, so forget the LANMAN method
and scratch the unsafer password
A wild guess,...
But the question remains, how to prevent this from happening ?
