How are you testing this ?
Please note that you either need to set your login shell to /bin/ksh with the
chsh command or you need to start ksh with the '-l' parameter to make it a login

Both ways work for me on RHEL-4.4 with pdksh-5.2.14-30.3
> cat ~/.profile
echo running $HOME/.profile
> ksh -l
running /home/karsten/.profile

I created another LDAP account and it works as it's supposed to. I tested it on
several other machines and it works correctly. The issue seems to be specific to
one LDAP account on one machine. Thanks for your assistance.
