[Samba] errors - cannot access LDAP when not root

I was happy enough running SuSE 9.3 and samba 3.0.20 with openldap but
hardware problems forced me to move. I tried openSuSe 10.2 with samba
3.0.23 and 3.0.24 but kept getting strange interactions with openldap
and Internal Errors from samba, I realise now possibly due to copying
.dat files from the old setup.

I've now moved to something I know a bit better, which is a more redhat
like Centos 5 and have virtually installed from scratch except for the
LDAP directory and the smb.conf. I'm now getting heaps of the same 
errors in the user logs.

Typically a fragment is:

[2007/05/21 23:45:18, 5] lib/smbldap.c:smbldap_search_ext(1179)
  smbldap_search_ext: base => [ou=Groups,dc=objectmastery,dc=com],
filter => [(&(objectClass=sambaGroupMapping)(gidNumber=10
0))], scope => [2]
[2007/05/21 23:45:18, 0] lib/smbldap.c:smbldap_open(1009)
  smbldap_open: cannot access LDAP when not root..

Any clues on how to get rid of the problem would be helpful, even if
it's to tell me more information is needed or where I should start
looking. Rollback is not an option.
