      Description

      Currently custom user profile fields can be taken from LDAP source. The sma should be for external DB. Compare last line in config.html for this auth plugin's, DB plugin does not use $this->get_custom_user_profile_fields() in call to print_auth_lock_options(). Maybe some other auth plugin's that uses print_auth_lock_options should be able to change custom fields too.
