Do you have a local user and an LDAP user with the same name? If so, the local user and the LDAP user will have different UID's. What *could* happen is that you authenticate to the LDAP server as "bob" with UID 10001, but your home directory is owned by "bob" with UID 1001 (different UID). *Maybe* that's what's causing your problems.
