Re: shell backend

what i wnat to do is to use openldap shell backend authentication via
threading. i need multiple instances of the shell backend application to
run. i have compiled openldap in cygwin with --with-threads option but when
i run the server and the shell backend application is activated, i get the
following error message:
"slapd shutdown: waiting for 1 threads to terminate" and the server hangs.
what can i do? do i have another solution? this solution works well if it is
compiled with the --without-threads option but i need multithreading.

Pehaps it might be a good idea to tell us all *why* you are doing all of
the above, and what you hope to accomplish. For example, comment each of
the abovementioned alineas.

I run Apache and Openldap 2.1.8, together with LDAP-modified PHP4 and
have an aim. What is your aim?
