Sounds like an MS Outlook 98 bug to me...

This is not a proper solution. The client may want to attempt another
operation (like a v2 bind). The server should not arbitarily close
The proper solution is to have Microsoft fix their client to attempt
to v2 bind if the v3 bind fails (and to properly ldap_unbind() any
unused LDAP sessions).
