I *think* it is the case - in Roller 4.0 - that when
using external authentication (LDAP or whatever) it is
still necessary for the user to exist in the roller database
as well.  I think it is the 4.1 series code that introduces the
pluggable UserManager stuff that will let you get around that

In the meantime, I think there is some auto provision setting
or something that you can turn on, which will let you avoid
the need to manually create the users in the roller database
when using LDAP.  Google around for it, or maybe one of the
users who is more familiar with it will chime in.
