What hash ends up in userPassword in this case? crypt? Real crypt(), with it's 
8-character limit?

This normally indicates a problem in the configuration. On a Linux host, this 
would typically indicate that nss_ldap was set up, but pam_ldap was not, and 
authentication was working via app->PAM->pam_unix->getspent(3)->nss->nss_ldap-
>LDAP, whereas you may prefer app->PAM->pam_ldap (otherwise some pam_ldap-
based authorization features don't work, password hashes are limited to those 
that are supported by all your clients etc.).

I don't have any access to our AIX hosts though ...
