I'm assuming that your script is in the 'passwd program' setting.  If
so, then I think you'll have to turn 'unix passwd sync' on otherwise the
script won't run at all.  The UNIX password won't be sync-ed of course
(unless your script does that as well).

[The 'unix password sync' option is proably badly named.  It should be
something like 'external password sync']
