Do these users happen to have accents etc. in their passwords? I once had
a hard time figuring out a similar problem. User had a ^ in his password,
followed by a vowel, and Windows (with US-International keyboard
settings) contracted that to a single character. Adding an extra space
after the ^ got it working properly.
