Needless to say, ldap stops working properly when this is occurring, and
has to be stopped and restarted.


Sounds like your system has run out of file descriptors. Are you running on Solaris? You can set the number of available file descriptors for your system in /etc/system, although there can be issues with using more than 1024.
