Crowd password change does not affect Google Apps password.

When using Crowd to handle SSO for Google Apps, the user cannot change the password within Google Apps since he is directed to Crowd. This is a problem since non-web email clients use the Google Apps credentials and not Crowd. Either Google needs to provide a way to change their internal password while SSO is enabled or Atlassian needs to fix Crowd to update the internal Google password.

Yep, this is a known limitation with the Google Apps API. - http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CROWD/Configuring+the+Google+Apps+Connector#ConfiguringtheGoogleAppsConnector-TheInsandOutsofSSOwithGoogleApps

Log a ticket with Atlassian at jira.atlassian.com but I think they are pretty much relying on google.

Alternatively you could talk to us (Appfusions) as we have a Google Apps Authenticator so you are at least using your Google Account as the master rather than delegating to crowd.
