If I'm reading the code right, all bind requests and exop requests issued by
libldap are allowed to block indefinitely.

In cases where a TCP connection to a server will succeed, but the server is
unresponsive (one contrived example would be if the server were stopped by
SIGSTOP), a client which connects and attempts a simple bind will block until
the server responds, which may be never.

Additional API-level options which influence this behavior on the client side
could be useful for working around this scenario.
