my recommendation would be to move away from libnss-ldap and libpam-ldap, and to use nss-pam-ldapd, available in ubuntu via the libnss-ldapd, libpam-ldapd and nslcd packages.  it may not explicitly solve your problem, but it will likely make troubleshooting things easier.  also, until you have a functioning, proper setup, remove things like nss-updatedb, libnss-db and nscd.  once things are working, if you feel some degree of caching is needed, address that as an independent item.
