I've got a similar setup and I was having some problems too. I've
discovered that each time I authenticate to eDirectory through RT, our
Novell system is registering a failed login attempt even though the
authentication was successful. That was decrementing my grace logins
until they expired, at which point authentication via RT would fail. I
ended up turning off that feature so that I have an unlimited number of
login attempts. Further, we discovered that the problem wasn't uniform.
Some users aren't affected and some are. It appears that users created
with the pre-ConsoleOne admin tool behave differently than newer users.
We haven't nailed everything down yet.
