I just wanted to clarify since I have also been struggling with this for a while also. I put this in my my common password file on the server (/etc/pam.d/common-password) and it only gives my the password chat if I logon to the server. The thin clients only reply back with incorrect password. Did you put this change in the /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/pam.d/common-password file?
