thank u for your suggestion, maybe I'll try it, when I've got a little 
more time ;-)

In view of that, I've got one more question. What I would really need, 
is a password authentification against LDAP and if successful,
get the user and his roles from the database. So, is it possible to 
split up this process and still use methods like check_any_user_role()?

thanx :-D
