Michael, 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.
