We have to distinguish two cases:

First case: The user has no "ldap timeout" explicitly set in
the smb.conf. In this case, I fully agree that the new
parameters kick in setting in particular the much shorter
ldap connection timeout.

Second case: The user has an explicit "ldap timeout" set. In
this case, that user has apparently had some reason to do
so. In this case, I would like both new parameters to
default to what the user explicitly set, because having that
explicit parameter was a conscious decision. We should mark
"ldap timeout" as deprecated then, pointing out the new
parameters in the documentation.
