I've run into a problem which I can't find the root cause of.
For the past 6 years I have had a variety of linux machines authenticating against an ldap server including ubuntu and mint machines. Up until December I had mint 13 machines authenticating fine with not problems. An update to the lib-ldap packages were rolled out at that point and I started being unable to log in with ldap users.
The login screen accepts the user name and password, screen goes blank, and then I am confronted with a popup saying "The system administrator has disabled your account." I have rebuilt the machines from scratch, built a mint 14 box as well and I get the same problem. I have also followed about 6 different ldap client guides.
These are the main 2:

Feb 6 16:56:12 skye-con-soe login: pam_unix(login:session): session closed for user kyem
I can't understand why I'm getting authentication failures. There have been no other changes except for the update rolling through. I know I could freeze the updates but I prefer to keep the systems updating.
Any help appreciated.
