Re: slapd still allows bind but returns no data

I agree with the other comments. Whenever I've seen this problem (i.e.,
you can connect, but then things just seem to hang), it's always been a
problem with the backend. I'll bet if you run slapd in the foreground
with debug output you'll see it just hang whenever it tries to do a search.
