Re: ldaps: not working, RH7.2,OpenLDAP 2.0.21

I can't believe in a full day of banging my head on this one that I didn't
ever try just "-h ldaps:///" all by itself - which works!  Which of course
makes me realize that if I did

slapd -h "ldap:/// ldaps:///"

instead of

slapd -h ldap:/// ldaps:///

it would probably start both servers correctly.  Which it of course does.

Sorry to everyone who wasted their time reading this...
