Microsoft Password Expiration Issue

I have figured out that when your password is expiring, each time you logout via Terminal Services, it decrements the days until you have to reset the password, instead of decrementing it at the end of each day.

What that means is, if I have a time limit on remote logins and I'm logging in and out all day long then it keeps decrementing the password expiration days so I have to create a new password sooner than should actually be required.
