There is a neat option I learned some time ago:

nss_initgroups_ignoreusers root,ldap,named,avahi,haldaemon,dbus

This (should) make ldap ignore these users (which exist locally,
unless you manually removed them)
Oh yes... Is the correct solution here to make this the default?

Yes; actually I think the right thing is to to always look up locally
any uid which is less than 500, because Fedora reserves those for the
operating system.  Can't find a reference at the moment, but if someone
does, add it to: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/UsersAndGroups
