[Samba] LDAP Bind Failure

I am using Samba 2.2.3a, and trying to use ldap for simple sambaAccount

After installing OpenLDAP 2.1, Samba is no longer able to bind to the
LDAP server at all apparently. All authentication fails. This appears in
the log files.

[2003/04/14 18:22:57, 0] passdb/pdb_ldap.c:ldap_connect_system(172)
  Bind failed: Protocol error
[2003/04/14 18:22:57, 0] rpc_server/srv_netlog_nt.c:get_md4pw(176)
  get_md4pw: Workstation station-30$: no account in domain

Obviously, LDAP fails to bind. "Protocol error" is not useful at all!

Any ideas?

Important config below. I have verified that I can bind (using
ldapsearch, and other programs), using the exact information below. I
have run smbpasswd -w.
