Yes, that is my understanding.
I have also found another problem with using "files ldap" - both sudo and su
don't work. They both appear to fail to find that I am in wheel and hence
won't let me do anything :(
If I have "ldap files" then they work OK.
"ldap files" should work for bootup too except that nss_ldap seems to sleep
trying to reconnect to the ldap server instead of giving up quickly.
