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.
