Actually, I think it's not going to be so easy. I don't think my problem 
is syntax. I think this isn't working because it is encryption set up to 
work with their password system, not ldap. I think it is trying to use 
the encrypted password with ldap, instead of it being unencrypted 
properly with ldap, and then compared. When I use the syntax below, it 
doesn't complain about syntax, the passwords no longer show up in /tmp, 
but the passwords just don't work.
