James Troup, one of the Canonical sysadmins was around on #sysadmin and
rebooted the box after turning off nss-ldap.

I was able to log in. When I turned on nss-ldap again, things were OK
for a while, but then slapd started running at 200% and no NSS lookups
were succeeding making the box unresponsive in many ways.

Stracing the slapd process showed it doing no IO but just sitting there
churning - I don't know if we have some rogue client doing really
expensive LDAP queries or if it's a slapd bug.


 - Turned off nss-ldap again and left it off
 - Added entries for Claude to /etc/passwd,/etc/shadow,/etc/group
 - Put an entry for gnomeweb in /etc/group with Claude as the only

So that Claude could work on damned-lies. Someone else will have to
investigate the slapd situation further.
