Note that the RHEL/CentOS packages of OpenLDAP are heavily patched and linked
against libnss. Hence it's probably better to report this to them. Also there
were some fixes in their packages recently. Did you yum update to latest package

You can also try to reproduce this failure with recent OpenLDAP release built
from source and linked to OpenSSL. That would be more important to the OpenLDAP
