I've just updated the wiki page. The short answer is:

$ sudo apt-get install portmap
$ sudo /etc/init.d/portmap restart

>  I can login successfully. The user's smbldap desktop appears, but with a blank tool bar. I can open an OO.o document that's on the desktop, but can't access anything from the tool bar. We don't have any problems with our thin clients using the smbldap server, just the fat ones.

Do you know for sure that /home is mounted? Can you log in as the
local admin and 'su - otheruser' in a terminal to become another user,
and then see that user's files in her home directory?

If you type CTRL+ALT+F1 and log in as an LDAP user there, how fast is
it? If that's faster, I suggest that your desktop (Gnome?) is
accessing the filesystem heavily and you have slow NFS. Make sure you
have 'portmap' and 'nfs-common' installed, and that portmap is
running, and see if that helps.

Good luck!
