I do. It's working just fine ...

Well, we/I would need your ldap.conf, nss_ldap.conf (should be a link to
ldap.conf) and slapd.conf, as well as pam.d stuff and nsswitch.conf.
Some actual error messages would be fine too.

Your should run tcpdump in some window to actuall see what's going on.
It also helps to turn on massive debugging in slapd.conf and tail(1)ing

I'm running the following versions on 7-CURRENT from 30. September
