I figured, at least for window, it would be a good idea for local mail
to any shell users to reach them rather than generate bounces.

But, you're right. Thinking it through a bit more, forwarding local mail
to the LDAP e-mail address is only actually approriate to those with
shell access to window (e.g. ftpadmin group members), and only if they
are using stuff like cron/at. If it's not forwarded, it generates
annoying bounces and the user is left in the dark about their job. I'll
try to work out a more group-oriented LDAP query string for window and
revert the ldapsource stuff from container/button/menubar where it isn't
actually doing anything useful.

Yes, I cocked up again. The LDAP alias lookup was returning an email
address for 'gnomeweb' and 'bugzilla', which meant that rather that
locally delivering the mail to procmail, it was just forwarding stuff
on :( I've altered the LDAP query string to not return results for those
two users, and checked - it's now working again.
