I have not been following this thread closely. I can say that I have always
used md5 passwords without any problem since Suse 7.0
Just 2 seconds to set it up.

It works properly for me. Yast & Yast2 have never been giving any problem to
me. And I am not a guru or a genious.

I really do not think you have to reboot at all. I didnt and it worked when I
switched for the first time from old 8 chars passwords to the new md5
passphrases... I Just changed all my password and everything went very well.

By the way, if you are not able to work with suse, why bother? Use redhat and
live well! I hope there is nobody with a gun to oblige you to use suse:-)
