Here it is (I had to switch my machine off the whole weekend for maintenance
in my office):

by hand-setting

    user_pref("ldap_2.servers.YOURSERVER.auth.dn", "YOURDN");

in $HOME/.netscape/preferences.js

and then starting netscape, you're prompted for your password only;
in this case I've been able to make netscape's address book to work
on ssl with login. I couldn't find any other way.
