Dear All,
I have just upgraded my system to 3.0.2 with ldap as the backend. I've found one weird thing after the upgrade is that users are prompted that their passwords will be expired in 12 days as this "12 days" never descending to 11..10..! 
I didn't set any password expiry date to my users before the upgrade......and here is one of the account info from my db:
PS. this account info is exactly the same as before the upgrade.
