I have also found that the S4 LDAP server is extremely slow compared to 
OpenLDAP; I have seen as much as two orders of magnitude difference. 
Indeed, we put all our automount maps, netgroups, mail aliases, etc on an 
instance of OpenLDAP running on port 390 on the DC's, because the S4 LDAP 
server is just too slow for the expected response times.
