Hi Bjorn,

    s3/ldap: delay the ldap search alarm termination a bit

    do the alarm termination of the the ldap search a bit delayed so the LDAP
    server has a chance to tell us that the time limit was reached and the
    search was abandoned. If the search is terminated this way we also get
    the correct LDAP return code in the logs. If alarm() stops the search the ldap
    search routine will report that the LDAP server is down which would trigger us
    to rebind to the server needlessly which we also want to avoid.

looks like it should be something we have in 3.6.1. If you agree
can you create a bug so we can get it back ported ?
