Looks like all your threads are stuck with the same connection, all
waiting for one of them to succeed in binding.  There appears to be a
deadlock condition, which should be solved somehow.
Basically, ldap_back_getconn() should not let a connection be acquired
before it becomes bound.  Simply giving up the connection in that loop
would cause some operations to temporarily fail, which may not be the
best solution.
