I note that using Start TLS in conjunction with LDAP over SSL makes
no sense.  That is, -Z and -H ldaps://... are mutually exclusive options.
However, as you didn't make it to Start TLS code, you didn't get
the warning (error if -ZZ).

I also note that in your client log, the command had no -x, so
SASL was used.  One shouldn't use SASL in conjunction with ldaps://.
You also did not have a space between the -w and secret which
might cause odd behavior.

Of ldap clients shouldn't crash.  To sort out why it crashed,
I'd need a stack traceback.  You're welcome to submit an ITS
on this.

As far as sorting out why LDAP over SSL is failing, I would
suggest experimenting with openssl(1) s_client and s_server.
