I'm Sorry, I should have explained about this before.  The modules in
Samba4's ldb are 'stacked', and initialise in order.  The bottom of the
stack is the connection to the backend - in this case the OpenLDAP
server.  If the ldapi:// connection cannot be made, then every other
module will fail to initialise as the error is propgated back up the

ie, the stack looks like this:


If any fails, all the modules above it fail, and the error you see above
is printed.  Only the first error (timeout or connection refused talking
to the socket) is relevant.
