(ITS#3520) search timeout setting in ldap.conf doesn't work

When a client isn't on the network and can't resolve the ldap server then it is
impossible to login in to the machine from the console.
We've tried setting the search timelimit to 1 and it never gets to the point of
The quick work around is to put the ldap server in /etc/hosts in which case it
passes the search process and goes to the bind_timelimit which fails and then
allows us to login in.
Not being able to login to a server while is can't resolve the ldap server is a
huge problem.
Why is this setting included in the ldap.conf if its ignored?
