Hitting the Problem with a really big hammer. Thats cures only the symptoms
not the Problem. As i see it the Problem is that the status/actions in 
nsswitch.conf not working. Since man nsswitch.conf stats that
success=return is default an therefore ldap should never be asked for Users
that are in the /etc/passwd file. 

I will file a Problemreport for this one.
