Ok, that makes sense. I've got the log level cranked up to 4095; is there
a way to get OpenLDAP to be even more verbose, so that I could see that it
was failing because the query was looking of entries in the "groupOfNames"

Ok, I misunderstood the meaning of "AuthLDAPGroupAttributeIsDN"; I thought
it told auth_ldap to look for just names in the group attribute, not DN
Thanks for the help. I suspect that I can fix it with this information.
By the way, is there a reason why group information isn't "standardized"?
I mean, I can understand wanting different namespaces for things, but
there appears to be at least three different dominant group mechanisms,
and they overlap in functionality.
