I bind directly against LDAP.

Ok, thanks for the hint, I will try this.

Another quick question: Could you please provide an option to be able
to specify different attribute name instead of uid? User names in the
LDAP I'm connecting to are saved in cn... pam_ldap2 allowed me to
change the name of this attribute with "map passwd uid cn".
