Thought so, but I thought I could at least ask (and hint about a nice
feature that some nice soul could add :).

Yeah, but then it's a bug in the man page. It clearly (or did I forgot how
to read one - it was a while :).


For me that states that port (and the 's' in 'ldaps') is OPTIONAL, not
REQUIRED (as opposed to 'hostname' which is)...

Using a port value works (sorry for not TRYING this myself). PARTIALLY!
It replicated to two out of tree servers! No reject files, no notice of
failure. No nothing!

'Someone' please fix the man page. I'd send you a patch if I didn't think
it was overkill :)
