But disabling _password login_ is an entirely separate issue from
disabling _the account itself_.

Before the fix, it was possible to log on to sshd using a disabled (or
locked) account.

There should be _no_ scenario where it is possible to log on using a
disabled/locked account.

(To state the obvious: That's the whole point of having
disabled/locked out flags - so the account cannot be used to log on.)
