We are aware of this error, and we still have to fix it ... (but this is not related to your
issue :)

ACIs are not guilty, see further.

Plain normal, the same method is applied for admin and all users.

The ldappasswd is using an extended request, described by RFC 3062. I 
_think_ we support this RFC, but it may be buggy (I don't remember last 
time we tested it... was far to away in the past :).

I suggest you fill a JIRA so that we check and eventually fix a 
potential issue of the next release (1.5.3).

I gonna check what's going on with this request anyway, but for the 
record, I would really appreciate a JIRA !
