Problem with long clear-text passwords (ITS#539)

ldapadd (and probably the other ldap tools too) fail to authenticate with the -W

option (prompting for bind passwd) if the specified password is clear-text and
longer than 8 characters. Specifying the password on the commandline using
the -w parameter works, however.
