"not enough CPU" is relative here. The socket layer receives the Unbind and 
close pretty much atomically, while slapd receives them as two separate 
events. Given that slapd *always* receives these as two separate events, it 
can *never* be "fast enough" to process this without at least one extraneous 
"no connection" occurrence.

If you see that, run the slapd with gdb attached and get a trace when it dies. 
There's nothing here that indicates anything abnormal. Closing this ITS.
