Well it appears as either nobody knows (or cares) about this.
Anyway in case some other poor bunny comes across this problem,
I solved it by changing the following entry in /etc/ssh/sshd_conf

from: #PAMAuthenticationViaKbdInt no

to: #PAMAuthenticationViaKbdInt yes

what has ssh to do with kdm? Stuff knows, but obviously there is some
relationaship in FC1. With the "yes" setting graphical login authenticates
against the NIS maps, with the "no" setting it doesn't.
