be able to see (by running ldapsearch under something like strace) where th=

This sounds like you are having DNS timeouts. You should provide some=20
information about your set-up, for example whether the LDAP server is remot=
whether you are accessing it via a hostname or via the IP address etc etc.
I don't think anyone generally experiences any problems like this due to=20
