You said, exactly:
At the moment, trying to do an authenticated simple bind to slapd caused an
Operational Error to be propagated to the client regardless of the setting of
So again, are you talking about Bind or are you talking about Search?
I'm unable to reproduce any of the behavior you're describing since the config
