But thus far you haven't provided anything that anyone can use to try and find 
out what is wrong with your configuration. Please try and include logs 
relating to all the operations on a connection, where an ADD, MOD, or DEL 
operation is done on the connection. A connection with one bind and one 
search, is almost useless (unless you can show the data in the directory that 
should be found by that search).

But, this is starting slapd. By default, it will try and bind to port 389 on 
all IPs. So, you should stop this one, if you *really* want to start a slapd 
as above. Instead, maybe you should add:

loglevel acl

and restart the ldap service ('service ldap restart'), and then (if your 
syslog is configured to log for slapd) you should end up with acl-related 
entries in your log files.
