hm.. where's your problem with locks..? :o)

and.. to use the ldap-clients, you'll not have to run a master.. it's
sufficient to copy the client-binaries.. (and run them with the
appropriate -h param)
no need of a "master" in common sense, that's what i wanted to say..

basically i'd prefer the one-shot mode too.. (depends wether a delay
of half an hour or a quater matters or not..)
