This limit is not imposed by openldap. It's from glibc. OpenLDAP uses the
select() system call which, in a default glibc installation, can handle up
to 1024 descriptors. Increasing this limit can only be done by recompiling
glibc with a bigger FD_SETSIZE.
Another alternative would be to port OpenLDAP to use poll() instead of
select(). poll() doesn't have such a limit.
