This is not a bug-report at this stage so I am directing replies to

All OK so far.

Error 49 (decimal) is 0x31 (hex) which is LDAP_INVALID_CREDENTIALS
so the password does not match.

My guess would be that there is something odd about this user's
password. Be aware that most existing LDAP client software treats
passwords as strings of binary without consideration of character set
encoding. This can lead to problems where an account has a password that
cannot be represented in 7-bit ASCII. There is nothing that the LDAP
server can do about this, as it does not know what character set the
application is using.

I would suggest changing this account's password to a new one using
only printable 7-bit characters. You can maintain good security by
making the password longer (but beware that the old Unix-crypt hash
scheme only uses the first 8 characters so avoid that if you can: SSHA1
is far better).
