Great! I've been meaning to work on this myself. Questions, is this against the
openldap 2 devel source, or the 1.2.x source? I ask, because it really needs to
be against the devel tree. Another question, does this support the Krb5 DES
encrypted sessions? If not, do you know if thats possible?

I'll check out your patch, if it looks ok, I'll try to merge it into the CVS some
time this weekend.
