slapd doesn't have much to do with this; it's the SSL library that takes care
of sending CA certs to the client. The OpenSSL library's write routines give
up whenever a write() returns < 1. In OpenLDAP 2.1.6 the TLS interface in
libldap was fixed to set the SSL retry_write flag when a write resulted in
EAGAIN. Unfortunately (as of 0.9.6g) OpenSSL's send_server_certificate()
function doesn't check the retry_write flag. Maybe it should, but that's a
question for an OpenSSL mailing list.
