Note that there are some security problems with LDAPI and SASL/EXTERNAL on
some platforms. I vaguely remember that Howard and Hallvard tried to track
this down on various OS platforms and OpenLDAP does not allow SASL/EXTERNAL on
these platforms anymore. Dig the openldap-devel mailing list.

There are some comments in section 5.1 in

I guess it's ITS#4893 in OpenLDAP's ITS but it seems to be made invisible.

Maybe Howard could comment on that.

Ciao, Michael.
