Re: Async problems (ITS#2305)

Your patch is not believed to significantly alter the behavior
of the library.  It may have only worked because it changed
the timing of calls.  Please test a clean version of OpenLDAP,
preferably HEAD, OPENLDAP_REL_ENG_2_1, or at a minimum, the
current "stable" release (2.1.12).  If you get a hang, please
then use a debugger to obtain a stack back trace (gdb bt) so
that we can see exactly where it hanging.
