I'm using OpenLDAP 2.3 and OpenLDAP HEAD and I don't experience anything
like that with ldap_bind(); I should add that I've never noticed
anything like that with OpenLDAP 2.2.

I note that ldap_bind() is currently deprecated; you should use
ldap_sasl_bind() instead.  Note that, despite the name, ldap_sasl_bind()
allows to bind with other than SASL authentication methods.
