This turned out to be a problem with the SSL server certificate.  The reverse lookup of the IP address 
doesn't match the common name defined in the self-signed certificate.  I added an entry in /etc/hosts for 
the LDAP server matching the certificate name, and I can now do TLS connections to port 389 and SSL 
connections to 636.
