Bug in LDAP-libs? (ITS#1426)

Using OpenLDAP 2.0.11 with OpenSSL 0.9.6a and nss_ldap Modules Version 172
under Solaris 8.

Everything works perfectly only cron works only for the first job it forks.

Debugging shows that all other jobs break with a SIG-PIPE after a write to
a file descriptor which should be connected to the secure port of an

Tracing the first child (forked by cron) shows that it does not only close the
LDAP-Socket-Filedescriptor but calls a shutdown on the socket before closing.

Thus, it's possible, that the bug is in Solaris-Cron. But cron does not know
about LDAP, so i think, the bug is in nss_ldap or other LDAP-Library.
