This is because root exists in /etc/passwd file but my-name is in LDAP
database. You need to add following line in your slapd.conf in
permission section to be able to search anonymously:

access to * by * read

Also are you able to get the full user list by issuing this:

# getent passwd

$LOSERS to all the people that you think are losers. This will cause all
said losers to have the variable $PEOPLE-WHO-THINK-I-AM-A-LOSER updated
in their .login file. Should you attempt to execute a job on a machine
with poor response time and a machine on your local net is currently
populated by losers, that machine will be freed up for your job through
a cold boot process.
