Replacing configurations with encrypted passwords

I recently had to apply a saved configuration to a 4500 series switch after replacing the supervisory engine (II+). I've done this kind of thing in the past without any problem, but this time I had some problems with the passwords. For example, there was local usernames like:

username user password 7

But I was unable to log in until I changed the password in the configuration I was using with a plaintext version and reapplied it to the switch.

Has the level 7 password encryption algorithm changed?

*service password-encryption*

In a IOS environment, this line needs to be applied...

Yes, that was in there.
