pam_ldap in nss_ldap on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, Fedora Core 3 and
earlier, and possibly other distributions does not return an error
condition when an LDAP directory server responds with a
PasswordPolicyResponse control response, which causes the
pam_authenticate function to return a success code even if
authentication has failed, as originally reported for xscreensaver.
