New information from the last observed episode: Load averages were
around 3.5 on the LDAP server. It normally sits at 0.0 - 0.5. "top"

ldapsearch did not report any errors; it merely took 30s or so to
respond instead of its normal nearly-instantaneous reply.

I will attempt that the next time this occurs.

I will do so. Note that my ssh sessions into both of the boxes were
responding fine throughout. Next time I will ssh directly between the
two as well.
