As far as I can tell, the idletimeout flag in slapd.conf does nothing whatsoever
for the server in causing idle connections to close.  We set idletimeout to be
30 on our machines, yet connections that are made, perform a single search, and
then do not unbind, are allowed to remain connected for hours at a time.  A
recent test we were doing of writing data to our directory server came up with
the same result.  If you make a write, and then do not close the connection, it
stays open for long periods of time, until the writing program itself recycled
the connection.  These times could be well over 30 seconds (the highest was 86
before the program in charge of writing closed the connection).
