Well, after digging into the openldap code some, it appears that the fact that I'm running freeswan is a redherring. the real thing that certain systems have in common is not having a reverse entry in the DNS. slapd totally and utterly hangs if you hit port 389 from a host that doesn't have a reverse entry! I'm going to rebuild my RPM with rlookups disabled, but even when they're enabled, catatonia seems like a rather severe reaction. It would be better to log the fact that there is no reverse lookup and then reject the connection.
