That could explain why 9999 hasnt worked for my service accounts.

Is this fixed in 6.4?

No, we are still working on the fix on the freeipa-devel list.

I've set "Max lifetime (days)" to 99999 in the web interface, but
here's what I see when I do "ipa pwpolicy show":

    Group: application-accounts
    Max lifetime (days): 8639913600
    Min lifetime (hours): 0
    History size: 0
    Character classes: 3
    Min length: 8
    Priority: 0
    Max failures: 0
    Failure reset interval: 0
    Lockout duration: 0

I have a user that is a member of the application-accounts group and
they reset their password yesterday, but their password is set to
expire in three months:

krbpasswordexpiration: 20130423220808Z
krbpwdpolicyreference: cn=application-accounts

Have I hit some maximum and I'm confusing IPA?  Or do I completely
misunderstand these entries?

I also have a case open with RH on this, but I haven't heard anything
back yet.  If I get this solved through them I'll be sure to reply
with results.

It is a 32-bit time problem.

I'd set the maxlife no higher than 5000 for now.
