LDAP accounts don't lock after failed JIRA login attempts

Hi, I have set up a delegated LDAP authentication directory and I am now able to authenticate to JIRA using LDAP credentials.  I am (unsuccessfully) trying to get it so that LDAP accounts lock after a certain number of failed JIRA login attempts.

I have configured ppolicy on the LDAP side, and the lockout mechanism works correctly if I try to login incorrectly to one of our unix machines that is integrated with LDAP.  On the LDAP side I get a new "pwdFailureTime" operational attribute for each failed login attempt, and then on the 5th failed attempt I get a "pwdAccountLockedTime" attribute.

But with JIRA I only get more and more "pwdFailureTime" attributes with each failed login attempt and the "pwdAccountLockedTime" attribute never appears.

Can anyone help?  Thanks very much.
