The default mapping has been changed to use the member attribute with
release 0.8.4 so this mapping is no longer required as of that version.

The mapping seems to be correct for the LDAP entry you provided. There
are indeed no group lookups coming into nslcd.

Are you sure /etc/nsswitch.conf is correct? Also, nscd could be causing
problems if it is running. You should disable it while debugging nslcd.
