Thanks for your help.

I have upgraded to openldap 2.2.27 on your advice but I have the same

Just to be clear, I should emphasize that a basic ldap search from a
mac (ie. ldapsearch) actually works. Here's an example of one that

ldapsearch -x -h "foo.uwaterloo.ca" -D
"uid=testguy,ou=People,dc=tcl,dc=com" -W -b 'dc=tcl,dc=com'

Furthermore, the id command works as I expect it to:

id testguy
uid=521(testguy) gid=502(cscfadm) groups=502(cscfadm)

It is just when I take the final step and try to actually authenticate
a user that the server crashes. Eg.

su -l testguy
Passwd: *******


Hm... well, this definitely shouldn't be happening.

Is it possible for you to get a backtrace from inside gdb of the slapd process before it cores? You would need to compile slapd with debugging symbols and put in a non-stripped version of the binary. You can build slapd with debugging symbols by setting

CFLAGS='-g -O2' CXXFLAGS='-g -O2'

in your environment before running configure. After doing the make install, you need to copy the slapd from your <source>/servers/slapd/.libs/slapd directory to your install location to get the non-stripped version.
