There's a bug in NT that causes connections to be held open indefinitely.
This is Bad with apps like LDAP that tend to open and close connections
quickly. Service Pack 5 fixes it. There is no supported fix for the problem
on Win95/98.

Are you running the current version of OpenLDAP? I remember talk about
adding a connection timeout to protect us from Microsoft's bug. Is this
only in -devel?

A TCP connection is an open file. Install lsof if you want more info.
