Not being able to reproduce on your end is a good sign -- the problem 
may be on my end.   I was testing with "half-patched" rc3 code while 
I'm away at a redhat conference.   Jerry has shown me the proper way 
to build fresh RPMs from the SVN tree with *all* the patches -- I'll 
plan on building fresh from this and also tearing down and starting 
the LDAP fresh, so I can get clean results later this 
afternoon/evening.   We'll see if that makes the difference...
