[Samba] Disable password complexity does not work?

Good to know that, in my case I don't have any Windows DC, but by setting
the GPO I was able to set up simple passwords when *creating* users. Not
really sure what happens when those users want to change their passwords
from Windows (which does not really happen often in my environment anyway).
There must be the catch.
