I use {CLEARTEXT} as standard, since I use SASL MD5 auth. On my test rig
(only a few users, OL 2.3.7) I add a new user with ldapadd and his
(pete's) password is automatically coded in {CLEARTEXT}. Even though
I've had to comment out the line in slapd.conf for slapd to start at

Why this is, I don't know.

I should file an ITS, if I were you. It just doesn't affect this
particular rig.
