Yes, because pam_ldap was able to authentify but pam_unix (which is
still required) tried to bind to the LDAP server. The missing option
was, in /etc/pam.d/XXX :

auth       required   pam_unix.so  try_first_pass
to tell pam_unix to use the above password.
I learned some things about the way LDAP works :-)
