Can you share what utilities you have used in Ubuntu client desktop to 
auth with the LDAP server?

Can the user login into Moodle with "old" password?  I would suggest

LDAP for user auth e.g. check openldap server log file for auth req. 
coming from the client when an user on the client logs into Moodle.
