pam_ldap, nss_ldap and rfc2307bis (using member instead of memberUid)


I'd like to use the rfc2307bis schema on our openldap server (I know
it's deleted by IETF). However I can't quite figure out how I could
convince either pam_ldap and/or nss_ldap to accept the group
memberships. All the groups a are found, the users are found but I
couldn't figure out what I need to tell /etc/pam_ldap.conf to accept
the memberships as set in the ldif entries below.

Like mentioned in the subject I'd like to use the member attribute
instead of the memberUid so that I don't have to keep track of members

Using these packages for the ldap stuff:
libnss-ldapd - NSS module for using LDAP as a naming service
libpam-ldap - Pluggable Authentication Module for LDAP

NSCD is not used right now, so that I don't have to deal with caching issues.
All of the above happens on current stable (Lenny)
# cat /etc/debian_version

any help?

# getent group |grep 500
# getent passwd|grep doe
# id john.doe
uid=1000(john.doe) gid=5000(users) groups=5000(users)

ldif entries:
dn: cn=users,ou=Group,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass: groupOfNames
objectClass: posixGroup
objectClass: top
cn: users
gidNumber: 5000
member: cn=Dummy
member: uid=john.doe,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com

dn: cn=testers,ou=Group,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass: groupOfNames
objectClass: posixGroup
objectClass: top
cn: testers
gidNumber: 5001
member: cn=Dummy
member: uid=john.doe,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
