Generally, it works fine except for the case when user passes its own
user name. Do we want to support the following way?

# klist
Ticket cache: FILE:/tmp/krb5cc_0
Default principal: f...@idm.lab.bos.redhat.com

Valid starting     Expires            Service principal
09/23/11 09:48:05  09/24/11 09:48:05  
krbtgt/idm.lab.bos.redhat....@idm.lab.bos.redhat.com

# ipa passwd fbar
New Password: 
Enter New Password again to verify: 
ipa: ERROR: Insufficient access: Invalid credentials

Maybe we could throw an error when user passes its own principal to ipa
passwd command. After all, this argument is for changing _other_ user
passwords.
