Aha.  Did not know that. :)

The fact that the user-setup in the installer accept passwords that are
rejected later when setting up Kerberos is a usability nightmare,
causing users to give up.

Is there anyone working on improving the situation?

As far as I can tell from
<URL: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=364526 >,
request a change in user-setup for modules to check the password has
been unsolved for 13 years.  Time to fix it?

Happy hacking
