Mapping home directory: $uid comes up empty

I'm looking for clues as to why my attempts to "map passwd homeDirectory" are failing.

My nslcd.conf file is here:

In the comments of that paste are various attempts at mapping the home directory, each with the result it produced.

Currently my user looks like this:

# getent passwd cmarget

cmarget:*:1407:1407:Chris Marget:/home/:/bin/bash

Any idea why $uid isn't expanding to 'cmarget'? That seems to be the popular way of mapping the home directory to the username.

Thank you!
