I'm using woody and sid for the testing (there are two boxes, in fact, one
at work, and the other one at home).

It looks like ITS #1116 is closed.

I'm using this option

Does $HOME/Maildir belong to this UID/GID?

Why are you using uidNumber/gidNumber attributes? In that case
you should use LDAP_UID and LDAP_GID instead of the globals


You should try some sniffing to see the ldap auth working. I
use it to make my debugging. (ethereal rulez   x)    )
