Dear usermin developer,

Thank you for always maintaining your excellent work. I use usermin 1.570 on CentOS6.2.
I found that changing password by forced change password function does not work with
a flag of "pwdReset=TRUE" in the ppolicy on LDAP or expired password. It shows
following error:
"Failed to change password: PAM error: LDAP Password incorrect: try again"

Forced change password function invokes "/usr/libexec/usermin/password_change.cgi"
instead of "/usr/libexec/usermin/changepass/changepass.cgi". I'm afraid the
"password_change.cgi" of "sub pam_change_func" should be modified as follows:
before: if ($msg =~ /old|current/i) {
after : if ($msg =~ /old|current|login/i) {

Could you confirm it, and hopefully the modification will be incorporated into the
next release of usermin.

With best regards,
