Interestingly, this also does not work.  OpenLDAP's logs show that
Communicator is logging in with the proper DN, this succeeds, it performs a
search with the proper base, it seems to succeed, yet no results are
returned.  Using ldapsearch on the commandline with the same credentials,
base and filter, I get a match, but in Communicator I don't.  The data in
this directory hasn't changed since I was allowing anonymous binds, so the
results being sent back to the client should be exactly as they were when
it was working in an anonymous-bind environment.

Curiouser and curiouser.  I actually would like to get Communicator 4.x
working, since I understand one of our larger branch offices is still using
it for most of their email.
