Your email made me look at this configuration again. Turns out that setting set_auth_type in the ldap module to "no", leaving copy_request_to_tunnel unset (i.e. set to the default "no"), and allowing LDAP authentication only in the inner tunnel made things work the same way as what it had been with gtc set. 

Thanks for that! Another thing to add to the cook book. :-)
