I found in the sudo-workers archive a note about 'ldap and password'
dated Fri Aug 20 09:16:53 MDT 2004.  

I am running HP-UX 11.11 (11i) with LDAP and shadow passwords.  With the
pam.c released with sudo-1.6.8p1 (pam.c 1.43), I had problems.  When I
reverted to 1.42, it works as expected.

Specifically, when I ran sudo with pam.c 1.43, it would accept a correct
password fine.  However, if I gave it a bad password, it reports the
following and exits the program.  No further password attempts.

  sudo: pam_authenticate: No account present for user

And even worse, I don't get insulted. :-)

It seems that 1.43 needs some more work.

Thank you
