I think it certainly could be LDAP. In 4.6, the code converts a
plaintext auth from LDAP into an 'interactive' auth.
4.7 will give you the detail you need to work out what is really going
on, implement fail2ban etc. In the meantime, all I can suggest is
turning up the logs and trying to stick it back together, but I realise
that isn't very satisfactory.
