Yes, I have similar problems. I can use LDAP to authenticate users but 
they can't change

My /etc/ldap.conf looks like this:

base dc=my-domain,dc=com
#rootbinddn cn=Manager,dc=my-domain,dc=com
pam_login_attribute uid
pam_member_attribute memberUid
pam_password md5
nss_base_passwd ou=People,dc=my-domain,dc=com?one
nss_base_shadow ou=People,dc=my-domain,dc=com?one
nss_base_group          ou=Group,dc=my-domain,dc=com?one
ssl no

If I uncomment the rootbinddn line, authentication fails.
The problem seams to be on the PAM side. I have no problem using
the LDAP server running on FC4 to authenticate users on FC3
machines, appart from being authenticated they can also change their
passwords and root can change password of any user.

The /etc/openldap/slapd.conf looks like this:

include         /etc/openldap/schema/core.schema
include         /etc/openldap/schema/cosine.schema
include         /etc/openldap/schema/inetorgperson.schema
include         /etc/openldap/schema/nis.schema
allow bind_v2
pidfile         /var/run/slapd.pid
argsfile        /var/run/slapd.args
 access to dn.base="" by * read
 access to dn.base="cn=Subschema" by * read
 access to *
        by self write
        by users read
        by anonymous auth
database        bdb
password-hash {MD5}
suffix          "dc=my-domain,dc=com"
rootdn          "cn=Manager,dc=my-domain,dc=com"
rootpw          secret
directory       /var/lib/ldap
index objectClass                       eq,pres
index ou,cn,mail,surname,givenname      eq,pres,sub
index uidNumber,gidNumber,loginShell    eq,pres
index uid,memberUid                     eq,pres,sub

My /etc/ldap.secret is readable and writable by the user ldap, and only 
by that user.

This worked perfectly with the same settings on FC3. Any idea what have
