OpenLDAP re23 (in practice, 2.3.36 just released) doesn't show anything
like that.  I note that differences related to the debug level usually
mean that a NULL or an invalid pointer is passed to a *printf(3) routine
on those systems that do not tolerate it (e.g. Solaris).  But usually
the bug disappears when __decreasing__ the log level, while -1 means all.
