For my part, at no place in my ACLs, for any clients whatsoever, do I
have access to userPassword by anonymous read. This would be ridiculous.
Always by anonymous auth.

Linux clients do *not* require the "access to attr=userPassword by *
read". There is nothing specific that defines "a Linux client." What is
that Linux client? Is it a Java client, a c/c++ client or a web-based
Pear/PHP4 client?

If you mean Linux PAM, then the Linux pam_ldap libraries take care of
