Ooops... I assumed too much :( I found it (or at least something which
looks like that) - NET ACCOUNTS.. Still it looks OK to me:

C:\Documents and Settings\paveltz>net accounts
Min. tra tempo limite e disconnessione forzata:              Mai
Durata minima della password (giorni):                       0
Durata massima della password (giorni):                      Illimitato

>>> Lunghezza minima della password:                             0

This reads: Minimum length of the password:
Obviously not helping too much... Bah! :)

Lunghezza cronologia della password:                         Nessuno
Limite di blocchi:                                           Mai
Durata dei blocchi (minuti):                                 30
