True true - I tend to treat name -> uid mappings and authentication as one
thing - my bad.

So thinking about this I may have found the issue. The enumeration and
authentication using the nss_ldap library was compiled against a different
version of openldap; i.e. the one installed as system software withthe
package manager. I have removed this version, re-compiled nss_ldap and I
can get this to start now.

Thanks for all the pointers
