I can agree with the theory of the patch I suppose.
I'm not signing off on it yet however.  What was the
alternative set of defaults?

I agree on this point.  The new timeout parameters should
be a separate patch from the Netscape LDAP changes.
But even on that I have to wonder, is it really the right
thing to do to support the Sun libs?  I mean who will
ensure that they don't get broken again?
