Well, I don't see it as a tangent. If the min time is > max time, I
don't know how the backend handles that off the top of my head.
Something thinks the password isn't old enough yet and that is a
calculated value.

And that's why I wanted to see the policy. Too young is defined as
cur_time < last password change + min password life. Who knows, maybe it
is a units issue.

In both the KDC and LDAP code this appears to be a show-stopping error
which is why trying to duplicate it using your values would be useful.

Knowing the version of IPA would help too.
