10.5: Be aware of a multiple user screen lock issue
Authored by: stevanreese on Dec 26, '07 11:14:10AM

A user either IS an admin, or IS NOT and admin.
If both admin users are logged in then one admin cannot change the others password. (tested with 10.4.11, 10.5.1)

As for the question about the Keychain.
If admin A changes the password for admin B the the Keychain password is not changed.
If admin A now logs in as admin B and changes the password, the system preference pane reports that the password will be changed, however it is not because admin B's original password did not match. Note the fine print. (again tested with 10.4.11, 10.5.1) However, I'm not sure this has always worked.

The dialog presented when you change your password indicates that the Keychain password may not be the same as the account password.
The fine print; "If your Keychain is locked, you will be asked for your current Keychain password before your password can be changed"
