Anonymous rsync + chroot + LDAP

I was running an anonymous rsync server with chroot (i.e. not overriding
the default) on a Fedora Core 2 system using flat files for
authentication, which I recently upgraded to Fedora Core 3 using LDAP for
authentication, and found that the anonymous rsync server wouldn't start
up. The problem when away if I turned off chroot, or if I put a copy of into ${path}/lib/ Is that the expected
behavior, or should a chrooted anon-rsync work on an LDAP-using system out
of the box?
