This works, and I think it makes sense this way, although it's different to
openldap-1.2.11 (where a hostname in the URL takes precedence over the host
in the ldap connection; it seems to open a second connection)

A couple of other issues:

- The difference in ldap_url_parse still exists. i.e. for an empty hostname
in the URL, openldap-1.2.11 returns a NULL pointer, whilst openldap-2.0.6
returns a pointer to an empty string.

There is existing client code which assumes the NULL behaviour (for example,
exim's ldap client) - but I cannot find any documentation which says what
ldap_parse_url ought to do in that case.

- When ldap_url_search returned, it was leaving LDAP_OPT_ERROR_STRING set to
a null pointer.

In an attempt to test this again, I ran the program below leaving the ldap
server pointing to a non-existent host ( After 75 seconds it
aborts with a sig11:

$ ./ldaptest
Host: '', Port: 389
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

$ gdb ldaptest -c ldaptest.core
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.
