What LDAP server are you running?  You probably mentioned it already
somewhere in this thread, and I'm going to guess Active Directory, but just
want to make sure?  If it's OpenLDAP then it is quite possible it is
configured to disallow logins without some form of encryption (although I
wouldn't expect the search bind to work in this case, but who knows).  AD
doesn't usually have those restrictions, but depending on the environment,
it actually might require encryption, as well.  Other than that, it would
be useful to get a log from the LDAP server that indicates why it is
failing authentication - if it believes the password is wrong, or if it is
throwing some other sort of error.  I realize that you might be in an
organization where you don't have access to that server or those logs, but,
if you do, that would be helpful.
