It looks like there is a bug in the authentication mechanism.
I use (or should say try) LDAP for authentication, and it works just
fine with ssh, local login, but it fails with gdm.

I'm not sure what happens, but it looks like gdm isn't able to login
with non-local users.
Any idea where to start looking?
It may be as simple as 'init 3; init 5' -- applications only read
nsswitch.conf once, so if you enabled LDAP after gdm started, it won't
re-read the configuration file.
