Oh, there are many solutions: one of my favorites is to require a percentage of all letters to change to force the user to use a completely new password each time. Depending on how that is implemented, the user can just shift the entire password one character left or right and fool the entire mechanism.

Mostly this is a game. It is "wily" network administrators against their own users who endeavor to circumvent the network administrators. You'll notice, while being adversaries in this battle, both are missing the true enemy lurking trying to find a way in!
