Have you checked that you have ldap listed in the /etc/nsswitch.conf 
file? Under Debian, you need to install a new version of libnss (or a 
library that it uses) to support LDAP queries, and the 
/etc/nsswitch.conf file on my machine looks like this:

Alex's /etc/nsswitch.conf contains:
> passwd:         compat ldap
