Yup, it works now.  Thanks.

Right.  Adding the '-4' option removed the duplicate bind.

That sounds like a bug: I wouldn't want slapd to start happily with only
v6 without and let me think it had v4 (too).  For now I can give the -4
option to avoid that, but when the time comes that I do want v6 as well
it could become a problem.  Or if it started as v6-only while I only
wanted v4 and didn't know about v6.
