When you change your password with the password changing page, it actually performs a couple of different steps to make sure that you have access to all network resources with the same password. If you change your password using some other mechanism, all of those steps won't get done, and you'll lose access to something; for instance, you might still be able to get your mail, but not get to your network folders. If you forget and use the wrong tool to change your password, just come to the password page and change it again.
