Alfresco 2.1RC1 Community and LDAP authentication

Greetings all,

I'm attempting to get the community edition of Alfresco to speak LDAP to our AD server so that I can provide unified logins across our internal services.  Unfortunately, this isn't going too well.

1) The Alfresco code appears to hammer the supplied principal with a series of invalid passwords when it boots.  This has locked out my test account quite a few times :)

2) Once I realised what was happening in 1), I tried to log in.  I got
javax.faces.FacesException: Error calling action method of component with id loginForm:submit
caused by:
javax.faces.el.EvaluationException: Exception while invoking expression #{LoginBean.login}
caused by:
org.alfresco.error.AlfrescoRuntimeException: Not implemented
Am I right in interpreting this to mean that Alfresco Community edition doesn't do LDAP?

3) Sort of related - if I try to use NTLM, Alfresco won't even boot.  I get the WAR file deploying message, and at that point it's 'Goodnight Irene'.

Help? :)
