RFC 2251 sec 4.4

Thanks for the suggestion regarding client auto reconnects on slapd
restart (thread below).
I would think that this is possible using the "unsolicited notification"
presented in RFC 2251 sec 4.4. However, I don't know of any examples of
this in production. I think polling for connection state would be
painful. Do you have examples of a client re-connecting after server
restart? This would be very beneficial to my current project.

	But to solve your situation you should also tell the
implementors of
	qmail-ldap, courier-imap, etc. to implement a simple reconnect
	mechanism. Shouldn't be too hard for them.
	Ciao, Michael.
