LDM's X01-localapps pathlogically slow

With non-trivial numbers of users/groups (e.g. when the server LDAP
authenticates), X01-localapps takes many, many minutes to return,
blocking the session from starting.

The runtime for the "while read" loop goes from under one second when
not appending $gname to $gnames and $gid to $gids to over a minute
when appending, for 1800+ group IDs. This is on a 2GHz Opteron. It's
much worse on typical terminal hardware.

LOCAL_APPS=True by default, at least in Fedora, so this means LDAP
auth is FAIL out of the box.

Can someone clue me in on the location of the upstream bug tracker, so
I can report this properly? Thanks,
