ldap_init was broken in UMich 3.3 and early versions of OpenLDAP.
It's works in OpenLDAP 1.2.3 (all our client/tools use ldap_init).

ldap_open is listed as deprecated on IETF draft LDAP C API
specification.  However, it is still part of the API implementations
are required to provide.  As such, ldap_open will be included
in OpenLDAP 2.0.
