Generally, the auth providers only let someone else take a shot when
they can't lookup the username they're trying to authenticate.

Contrast with this case, where LDAP thinks it's supposed to handle it
because the user is found in LDAP but their password doesn't match.

I don't think you can try another type of auth in this case.
