If this is the case, 2.2.14 is broken as well. I do not think search base
is meant to be passed along with URI to ldap_initialize().  The error in
2.1.21 is misleading and wrong (bug?);  2.2.14 says
'ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Can't contact LDAP server (-1)', when uri
is invalid (-H lda//), the server returns "Could not create LDAP session
handle (3): Time limit exceeded".  I would expect 'Invalid URI' or similar
in both cases.
