when i test that here with a win7 ultimate box, i get on the samba side:

kpasswdd: Password change rejected, password changes may not be permitted on this account, or the minimum password age may not have elapsed.

in kpasswdd.c -> kpasswd_make_pwchange_reply()
not all SAM_PWD_* enums are tested, so the switch/default case is taken.

Sorry, have no time to dig deeper with this one.

Cheers, Günter
