Re: (ITS#4715) proxy retries anonymously

The proxycache has nothing to do with the connections to the remote 
server. That's handled by the back-ldap or whatever backend you're 
using. Since you haven't provided any of the relevant config info from 
your slapd.conf there's no way to tell what you're doing there.

In fact your log shows that a Bind was performed on the retry, but it 
was done anonymously. So it may be something as simple as a missing 
config keyword (like rebind-as-user in back-ldap). Or it may possibly be 
related to a bug in back-ldap's retry handling as Pierangelo mentioned 
in his reply to you.

There is no proxycache bug here. At the moment, without further details, 
it doesn't seem there's any OpenLDAP software bug here at all.
