Yes it is almost certainly the same issue, as the ipa-pwd-exop plugin
handles all password changes and keytab issuance.

We have a patch for the v2 version of the plugins but haven't yet found
the time to backport to 1.2.2.

A workaround is to downgrade DS to a version not compiled with openldap
libs (or recompile it with mozldap).

If you look in this list archives you will also find that Thomas Sailer
has created a backport of the patch and posted a srpm on his fedora
people page.

We hope to address the issue as soon as possible, but we are short on
time in this period.
