DBus not working with Kerberos-LDAP user accounts

Hi. I have some boxes running PCLinuxOS 2007, authenticating against a Kerberos-LDAP server (Windows 2003 with SFU) that stores user and group info (UID, GID, home dir, group membership, and shell). These users have UID's starting from 10000.
My problem is that, when i log in with local accounts (that is, those stored in /etc/passwd on each computer), DBus works perfectly for all users, with no need of making them members of any group. typing "lshal" at the console gives me a list of the system devices. But when I log in with a domain user (those stored in the LDAP server), DBus seems not to work. "lshal" gives me the following error:

error: dbus_bus_get: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. 
Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security
policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
Any ideas on what could be the problem, and how to fix it?
Thank you very much in advance!
