mac 0SX 10.3.9 user...nw6.0, spk5. user keeps getting locked out of his
account. seems like there's some weird sync issue going on, because all I
have to do is unlock it, then he can log in fine with the same exact
password that just caused him to get locked out.

password was most recently changed via the mac workstation. he's had
trouble ever since. at first, I just deleted his simple password via
console1, and let nds create him a new one. ("afp cleartext"). so this
should have recreated a simple password from his nds password. and it
seemed to work, at first. but now he's frequently getting locked out, which
doesn't make any sense to me, when unlocking and then using the very same
password lets him in.

stumped on where to go with this.
