Because I followed blindly the UserPassword example in the Admin Guide
(Chapter 5.4) without reading and understanding every other chapter ;-)
(the example allows the administrator to read the password of an user)

I changed it now to:
access to attr=userPassword
by group="cn=admin,dc=com" =wx
by group="cn=maintainer,dc=com" =wx
by self =wx
by anonymous =x
by * none stop
and it works as expected.
