[K12OSN] Can;t login with gdm but ssh OK

I've just setup my second thinclient box & I thought I'd done it exactly the same as the first but I 
must have missed something. The box has a slave ldap server running on it so it's setup to 
authenticate against this one to cut load on the main server.

I can ssh in as a student OK but when I try to login as the same student on one of the client it 
doesn't work and /var/log/messages shows

gdm: cannot authenticate user

What have I missed :-)
