Each time the ldap settings are changed, the non-anonymous bind user password has to be re-entered otherwise the binding fails.

How to repeat:
Set the ldap settings to be working.

Try changing the ldap settings and notice that the password field is empty. Save changes and log out.

When you attempt to login again the non-anonymous binding fails.

Suggested fix:
Don't reset the password

Workaround is to make sure the password is set each time you save ldap settings.

Added to 2.3.2 change log:

Each time LDAP settings were changed, the binding would fail unless
the non-anonymous bind user password was re-entered.
