Heyho hiro,

Same argument as for surf applies here: If you can't fix the suckyness, you have
to build a nice interface for it. If you would not abuse this segfault, I'd
recommend you debug it and send in a patch to fix it, but I have access to a
sucky LDAP setup as well, so I might be able to reproduce it myself…

This is an interesting idea. I would not use it for mainline (users don't want
to change their password in many places), but you can push a patch to the wiki.
