Re: (ITS#6828) TLS fails to start when LDAP_OPT_CONNECT_ASYNC is used

ldap_int_check_async_open gets an error and returns -1, and then -1 is
returned up the stack ldap_int_check_async_open -> ldap_send_initial_request
-> ldap_sasl_bind. But when ldap_sasl_bind gets that -1 return from
ldap_send_initial_request it returns ld->ld_errno, and nowhere have we set
that. In fact, ld->ld_errno still contains LDAP_X_CONNECTING from when the
initial connect was issued, and so ldap_sasl_bind returns LDAP_X_CONNECTING,
and that is what leads to the infinite looping that I see.

Thanks for the analysis and fix. Now patched in master. In the future please 
send actual diffs, as noted http://www.openldap.org/devel/contributing.html
