Yes, this is correct.
Encrypted passwords will differ each time, as the 'SALT' is different each
Encrypting the password with same SALT will produce same encrypted string.
But as salt is chosen (more or less) randomly each time you call the
functions this will produce different output patterns.

Than the new password ain't used.
If something would be wrong with encryption functions the user would _not_
be able to log in, neither with new nor with old password.
If user can still log in after you've tried to set the new password you
were not successful in setting the new password.
Did you only set the password in 'vpasswd' file or did you recreate
'vpasswd.cdb' after changing the password?

vmkpasswd $domain

should be your command.
