Your original email hasn't shown up, so some context for your question is missing. Also, it doesn't appear that your question belongs on this list; it should be on openldap-technical.

But it sounds like you're accessing an LDAP handle without making sure it is thread safe. You can continue this discussion on the -technical list.

I have narrowed the corruption problem down to the file
libraries/libldap/get_values.c apoximatly line 80 the ber_scanf in the
if statement.

When it work on my machine, it returns pointers for 'vals' such as:

vals pointer: 0x105c920

and when it fails:
vals pointer 0x7f6130004c20
