      Description

      When using Secman with delegated authentication to LDAP, any login attempt authenticated or not will create an (disabled) user-account in the DB.

      While not a security risk, this allows attackers to 'fill' the database with arbitrary garbage.

      Desired behavior for this scenario is to auto-create user accounts in the DB only if these do successfully authenticate with the delegated authentication mechanism.
