Not so. I find...
With my config, all run fine for ldap identification, but impossible to use 
ldap vcards...
I try it with ejabberd 1. Maybe it's the problem...

Not a server config problem but  a client.

Yes. Per default, Psi display the pseudo (nickname i believe) in the roster.
If it don't find pseudo, it display the JID

Yes, but to display the pseudo in place of the JID in the roster, you must to 
delete the contact and to add it back.

I think. It depend the parameters given in the rootdn and password module.
The user must to have good rights...

I hope not to say too errors.
