Only if you either remove ldap from the groups: line in nsswitch.conf,
or you do not use any programs that call initgroups()/getgrent().

A workaround may be to have /etc/nsswitch.conf.files that does not have
LDSP entries, bind-mount it over /etc/nsswitch.conf in say
/etc/rcS.d/S02blah, and unmount it in /etc/rcS.d/S99blah. This is not a
real fix though since udev events can be processed well after rcS is run.

The real fix would be to tame libldap2/libnss-ldap.
