we lock UNIX/Samba/Kerberos accounts in our system by "invalidating" the
userPassword (i.E. putting some random string before the '{HASH}' part),
settings the loginShell to '/bin/false' and putting the 'D' flag in

Scrambling userPassword will prevent logins based on simple bind,
changing the loginShell prevents PublicKey logins and 'D' in
sambaAcctFlags disables logins with Samba and Heimdal Kerberos.
