On setting the general client timeout with LDAP_OPT_TIMEOUT and performing
a search on a simulated hung server ("nc -l 389"), I get a coredump:

assertion "r != NULL" failed: file "error.c", line 272

Known problem? Should I file an ITS?

Yes, please file an ITS.

I note that ldap_search_s() is deprecated; there is no problem if you use ldap_search_ext_s().
