Not sure which log you are looking at. When I look at the log:
The only connection I see in the log is conn=1000 and it ends with:
conn=1000 op=5 SEARCH RESULT tag=101 err=2 nentries=0 text=paged results cookie is invalid
ldap_read: want=8, got=7
0000: 30 05 02 01 07 42 00 0....B.
ldap_read: want=8, got=0
conn=1000 op=6 UNBIND
conn=1000 fd=11 closed
These tests where made with a single ldapsearch request. The ldapsearch
tests fail when using the proxy and succeed when connecting directly to
the LDAP server with the database on it.
A side node: the test case I submitted used ldapsearch, but the
problem was uncovered using a python application that is used for
syncing Gmail account data.
