from my own experience, the /expires:never flag only prevents expiry of
the *account itself* but *not* of the password.
I just tried this command
net user myuser mypwd /add /expires:never
on my XP-Pro-SP2-Box and then looked into the Windows-User-Manager.
The password-does-not-expire checkbox for this user was *not* set.
