The remote server is the local server; it looks itself up via a named 

I've managed to reproduce it 100%, and it's really strange...

The FreeBSD port of OpenLDAP comes with a script 
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/slapd.sh which handles starting/stopping etc.  Call 
this from CRON, it will fail 100% of the time, on the first search.  Call 
it via a remote shell, ditto.  Call it from the command line, works OK.  
And only on this server, which has an identical configuration to another 

As it would not appear to be an OpenLDAP problem after all (but perhaps a 
bug is being tickled somehow) I won't pursue it any further on this list.
