I think your problem is in your pam module configuration, I use something
like that for auth:
auth required pam_nologin.so
auth sufficient pam_unix.so
auth required pam_ldap.so use_first_pass
With this setup the user is only asked once; if 'pam_unix' succeds the user
is authorized and if it fails 'pam_ldap' tries to authenticate using the
same password entered.
Hope this helps.
