In Solaris 9, using Webmin 1.270, if I create a new
user and choose password "ask at first login", the
account is created with no password, and I can login as
that user without being prompted to change or enter a
password.

    The 'ask at first login' message can be misleading if your
    Solaris system isn't configured to actually do this. To fix
    the message, edit the file /etc/webmin/useradmin/config and
    change the line :
    empty_mode=1
    to
    empty_mode=0
