Sorry, but this is a libnss-ldap bug or a bug in your configuration.
The pam_unix module checks the password field returned getpwnam() for
the value 'x', and if found, consults the shadow database.  If libnss-
ldap isn't going to make the shadow database available, then it
shouldn't refer callers there by returning this 'x' value.  pam_unix is
working as intended when it refuses access for a user configured this

** Package changed: pam (Ubuntu) => libnss-ldap (Ubuntu)
