Problems with LDAP user synchronisation

I have followed the examples provided in the Wiki and these forums to setup LDAP login on two LDAP servers (working fine) and I am now trying to get the user synchronisation working. For some reason the users are not getting synchronised but the groups are. This is what I have in my ldap-authentication-context.xml:


    <bean id="ldapPeopleTrigger" class="org.alfresco.util.TriggerBean">
        <property name="jobDetail">
            <bean id="ldapPeopleJobDetail" class="org.springframework.scheduling.quartz.JobDetailBean">
                <property name="jobClass">
                    <value>org.alfresco.repo.importer.ImporterJob</value>
                </property>
                <property name="jobDataAsMap">
                    <map>
                        <entry key="bean">
                            <ref bean="ldapPeopleImport"/>
                        </entry>
                    </map>
                </property>
            </bean>
        </property>
        <!– Start after 5 minutes of starting the repository –>
        <property name="startDelay">
            <value>300000</value>
        </property>
        <!– Repeat every hour –>
        <property name="repeatInterval">
            <value>3600000</value>
        </property>
        <!– Commented out to disable –>
        <property name="scheduler">
            <ref bean="schedulerFactory" />
        </property>
    </bean>
   
    <bean id="ldapGroupTrigger" class="org.alfresco.util.TriggerBean">
        <property name="jobDetail">
            <bean id="ldapGroupJobDetail" class="org.springframework.scheduling.quartz.JobDetailBean">
                <property name="jobClass">
                    <value>org.alfresco.repo.importer.ImporterJob</value>
                </property>
                <property name="jobDataAsMap">
                    <map>
                        <entry key="bean">
                            <ref bean="ldapGroupImport"/>
                        </entry>
                    </map>
                </property>
            </bean>
        </property>
        <!– Start after 5 minutes of starting the repository –>
        <property name="startDelay">
            <value>300000</value>
        </property>
        <!– Repeat every hour –>
        <property name="repeatInterval">
            <value>3600000</value>
        </property>
        <!– Commented out to disable –>
        <property name="scheduler">
            <ref bean="schedulerFactory" />
        </property>
       
    </bean>

And the log outputs:


15:12:02,562 INFO  [org.alfresco.service.descriptor.DescriptorService] Alfresco started (Community Network): Current version 2.1.0 (482) schema 64 - Installed version 2.1.0 (482) schema 64

15:16:41,343 DEBUG [org.alfresco.repo.security.authentication.ldap.LDAPGroupExportSource] Secondary 0

:?: Any ideas why the group import runs but the user import doesn't? Does it have anything to do with chaining? I have the following:

Could there be some sort of conflict?
