This means that the standard getpwuid() call should work? I would expect 
it to, since you said NSS is used.

I wonder if the function getgrouplist(3) also uses NSS. According to my 
very simple tests here, it does.

But it is the one that returned ENOENT for your case. I cannot account for 
that. Your problem is not in D-Bus. Please fix your NSS LDAP module.
