I think the problem is that the applications that use nss, have the
nss_ldap library open, which in turn has libldap open. There doesn't
seem to be any way around the fact that almost all applications use nss
for some reason, and if your nss is configured to use ldap it will use
the nss_ldap module.

about the clean mounts, do you happend to have a separate /usr?
