      Description

      When using LDAP authentication, and allowing users to change their ldap password from moodle by setting the option Use standard Change Password Page to Yes, I find that moodle changes the password into clear text. Even if the old ldap password was md5 encrypted.

      When the ldap password is changed through moodle, the new password ought to be stored in the same format (encryption) as the old one.
