It's actually not considered a bug.  ldap_sasl_bind(3) is async
in doesn't wait for the LDAP response.  There is no LDAP restart
API, as would be needed if the API didn't block on various
system calls.

So the first step in "fixing" this would be to design an LDAP
restart API...  yet another reason to redesign the whole API...
