looks like an rights problem with the nss libraries...
- check that the file /etc/libnss-ldap.conf has file mode 644
- check the rootbinddn stanza in the /etc/libnss-ldap.conf file
- check that you have nscd installed and running
these 3 work as a team to do the anonymous nss magic...
if it still fails try (as a normal user)
