OK, this problem was definitely on my end.   I rebuilt fresh packages 
from SVN, reinstalled & reinitialized the LDAP server, and everything 
worked just fine this time.    FWIW, I think I may have mistakenly 
copied in one of the smb.conf variants that was set up for a 
master-replica LDAP system when my replica is not replicating.   I 
made sure to use the master-only variant this time, and everything is 
just fine.

Sorry for the false alarm.
