I haven't deployed a system using Roller's SSO/LDAP features, but I
believe that the way it is supposed work is this. When an
authenticated user arrives and Roller determines that the user is not
yet in the Roller database, then Roller will present the new user
registration page. The page will be pre-populated as much as possible
(from LDAP attributes) and the password field will not be shown.

Once the user completes and submits the form, Roller will create a
record in its user database for the user and a record for his/her
