So really, all I want is that Zope checks the passwords with the LDAP

And perhaps, a possibility to check/search for the available loginnames
on the LDAP server when adding a user to the userfolder.

Does anyone know whether there is such a product, or give me some
poiners to adapt an exisiting product to my needs?

There is an LDAPMultiplugin for PluggableAuthService, which might make this easier. It could be as easy as installing LDAPUF in PAS and turning off all its interfaces except for the auth one.

However, I don't quite see how you would store users in Zope and then ask for the password in LDAP on a one-to-one basis. Seems like you're relying on an "accidental" correspondence between ZODB-stored user names and LDAP user names.
