Not just working on it - I think the 'account autolocked' part is
The main problem with this patch is the change to the DB format string -
you break every TDBsam installation out there.
The other problem is that it's racy - we don't atomicly update the
counter. That's hard, given the current model, but newer LDAP servers
apparently have support for a 'increment this value' control.
