All of which I'm doing.

Most things it changes fine, if a bit quirky (such as needing to be
refreshed after making changes to see them). In short my situation is

* users can't change theirldap stored passwords without manual
intervention to prevent them from being prompted for another change
within two days

* passwords can't be made unchangeable despite the X bit appearing in
the ldap record

* password expiration can't be set from user manager

* 'net time' is three days slower than system clock
