[sudo-workers] sudo and ldap-only: uid not found

in the last days I noticed a problem on one of my (private) computers. In my 
LAN there is one box which get its users only from ldap - in the /etc/passwd 
are only the standard ones (e. g. root, bin, ...). 

Log-in is working correctly, but I can't use sudo:

| $ sudo ls
| sudo: uid 1000 does not exist in the passwd file!

System is gentoo-linux (x86).

# uid 1000 is username 'mr'
$ getent passwd | grep mr

 $ emerge -pv app-admin/sudo
These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild   R   ] app-admin/sudo-1.6.8_p9-r2  +ldap +offensive +pam (-selinux) 
-skey 0 kB 


I found nothing helpful with google. :(

Any hint?
