Processes are completely separate (unless you happen to be using explicitly 
shared memory). It's pretty much impossible for any code in libldap to be 
directly responsible for the behavior you're reporting. If you're using a new 
socket for each request and not closing them when done, it's likely that 
you're running out of free ports in your system.

There is no indication of a bug in OpenLDAP Software here. This ITS will be 
closed. Since it's most likely an issue in how you coded your application, you 
can followup to the OpenLDAP-software mailing list if you want to discuss this
