OpenLDAP 2.0.7 problems with binds (ITS#988)

I've noticed that using OpenLDAP 2.0.7, the closing of an LDAP connection does
seem to free all the resources used during that connection.

For example, bind (as a user) and immedaitely close the connection.  (password
verification is one reason you might do this.)  Now repeat this 50,000 times.

You'll see the amount of RAM used steadily increase, until eventually slapd will

core dump.   On my system, a Sun E250 with 2 CPUs and 1GB of ram, I get about
connections before the server drops dead.
