    Chances are that when they made the encrypted disk image they didn't deselect the option to remember password in the keychain which (for some bizarre reason) is checked by defualt.

    To make it ask for the password again, go to keychain access (/Applications/Utilities/Keychain Access.app) and remove the entry that corresponds to the disk image name.
