Please note that this bug is in BSD/OS, not OpenLDAP, and should
be reported to BSD/OS maintainers.  If at all possible, I rather
have BSD/OS fix their bug then to have to implement a workaround
in our code.

man 2 accept
     The accept() argument extracts the first connection request
     on the queue of pending connections, creates a new socket with the same
     properties of s and allocates a new file descriptor for the socket.
