Turns out that my username and pwd do not work, but everyone else's 
does. Poor testing  regimen on my part. That said, I cannot figure out 
what is wrong with my profile. It has the same permissions as everyone 
else. It works on all other servers I log into. Just not *this one*. 
Given that I had the previous problem with my .dmrc file, I can see that 
there is an  ongoing problem here that I did not solve by fixing the 
.dmrc issue.

I tried tailing /var/log/messages on the ldap server to see what happens 
when I login vs. anyone else. I copied the very first message of 
successive logins as user <test1> and then as <me>. As you can see 
below, the <test1> user has an additional filter 
(&(objectClass=posixAccount) that I do not:

Jan 21 15:41:48 <server name> slapd[4228]: conn=121233 op=1 SRCH 
base="dc=slane,dc=k12,dc=or,dc=us" scope=2 

Jan 21 15:37:03 <server name> slapd[5920]: conn=120122 op=1 SRCH 
base="dc=slane,dc=k12,dc=or,dc=us" scope=2 filter="(uid=<me>)"

The other messages that follow all have the "extra" filter for either 
login uid.

I would like to tell you the version of openldap we run, but I have been 
unsuccessful in finding out how to do this. The el5 install is x86.

Anyone have a thought on how to check out my profile and why its 
failing? Or how to tell the version of ldap?
