Running several FreeBSD 7.0-BETA2/3 boxes with OpenLDAP 2.3.39-backend drove me into a problem: No local user is capable of neither changing his password nor shell or GECOS although this is allowed by users to do in LDAP ACLs. Looking for a solution in mailing lists I found only one - patching usr.bin/passwd/passwd.c. Doing so, users were capable of changing their passwords on LDAP backedn. Without this "patch" (simply commenting out a line and inserting a fprintf()-line for convenience) someone will get an error message only local users may change their passwords.

So, what is wrong with passwd.c not to be capable of changing passwords with an OpenLDAP backend by default?
