Hi Andrew / Gerry,

Sorry for previously nagging to getting this patch in...

I'm not certain whether it's specific to OpenLDAP. A quick search on the 
function call ldap_set_rebind_proc() brought up the Netscape SDK and has 
the same parameters for that call and the rebind procedure call.


So I assume that it's a general feature of LDAP. This document also states 
that referrals are followed unauthenticated unless the rebind procedure is

I've got this one.  I's been in my inbox for a while now.  I don't
believe it is OPenLDAP specific (although it may be tied to the OpenLDAP 
client libraries).  Will try to look at it later today.
