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) 

 strace finger <ldapuser>

If UNIX isn't the solution, you've got the wrong problem.
