[rt-users] Migrating to LDAP

Hi List,

I've got a question I'm hoping someone here can help me with.  I have  
an existing installation of RT that I'd like to move to another server  
and upgrade.  As part of this process, I want to switch to  
RT::Authen::ExternAuth for authentication.  I'm changing people's  
passwords as part of this.  I've set up a test system, but I've  
noticed something kind of odd in its behavior.  It seems like people  
can authenticate with either their old password or their new.  That  
is, it seems like both the Users table and the LDAP directory are  
being consulted.  If the user's password is correct in either one of  
them, the user gets in; but the user has to enter the wrong password  
according to both before authentication fails.  Have I missed  
something?  What can I do to make sure that only the LDAP directory  
gets used?
