that could get annoying for the other users who would find there
passwds unchanged every day as well.  a better option would be adding:

auth       requisite	 pam_listfile.so item=user sense=deny \
	file=/etc/deny.passwd onerr=succeed

to the begining /etc/pam.d/passwd, and add any users who can't seem to
use passwd command right to /etc/deny.passwd (or whatever).  multiuser

though i would agree with the previous poster, changing then
forgetting passwords is a good lesson (teach you to memorize first,
change second), probably better then teaching them to never change
their password ;-)
