use something like 'security simple_bind=128 update_ssf=128'.  This
gives the result code confidentialityRequired instead of
invalidCredentials when the ssf is insufficient.  Thus users who did not
use TLS don't get the impression that they just sent the wrong password
- and maybe then send the unprotected password again

Well, that certainly is an improvement.
