RE: Failed assertion in sockbuf.c

After studying the trace and the pam_ldap source code it is apparent that
this is a bug in pam_ldap.c:_open_session; it is trying to use the
ldap_start_tls_s function on an LDAP handle but there is no LDAP session
established yet. You should pursue this further on a pam_ldap mailing list.

Some observations to help you along the way - pam_ldap.c is littered with
#ifdef's to try to use whatever mechanisms are available to establish SSL
on the LDAP handle. The OpenLDAP library supports at least two of those
mechanisms, and the current pam_ldap.c is structured such that both of those
mechanisms will be used (at the same time). This is probably a bad thing.
And of course, if ldap_start_tls_s() is really meant to be used, it cannot
be used until some other actual LDAP request has already been made, to
force the connection to be established first.

If you need more help, we at Symas are always ready to take on customer
support contracts. But in this case, I'm sure you can get all the help you need
from www.PADL.com .
