Re: OpenLDAP 2.0.7 problems with binds (ITS#988)

I'd be very interested to hear if anyone else has had similar problems and 
even more interested to hear of any solutions. I performed a similar 
experiment and the server seemed to be leaking huge amounts of memory - 
around 2 MB per 1000 binds (anonymous or simply authenticated) wasn't being 
freed. It seemed to keep rising linearly up to 50k binds -- 115 MB of RAM 
gone !
