I'm using openldap 2.4.15 on FreeBSD 6.4

ldapsearch with the -W switch gives me the expected output but ends with
ldapsearch in free(): error: junk pointer, too high to make sense
Abort trap: 6 (core dumped)

ldapsearch with the -w switch does not core dump

This was already reported in an ITS, and will be fixed with 2.4.16.


Thanks a lot.

This raises an alarm: maybe I should stick with 2.4.11 for production
as it is recommended on the OpenLDAP web site, which in turn raises
a question addressed to FreeBSD users (sorry if I'm a bit OT).

How can I use ports to build OpenLDAP 2.4.11 (currently the ports tree
contains 2.4.15)? Should I build it manually, loosing the benefits of ports?

Also, OpenLDAP 2.4.15 in the FreeBSD ports tree is built
with BDB 4.6.21 with only the first 3 of the 4 recommended patches.

I'd very much like to have feedback (maybe off list) about those
issues when running a critical OpenLDAP server on FreeBSD.
