If OpenLDAP is built against GnuTLS, TLS connections fail with this

troubleshoot this further?

There are a number of bugs in GnuTLS that render it fairly difficult to use. See Debian bug#477396 for example.

I also suggest reading the note on -devel from Howard Chu GnuTLS being considered unsafe to use from a security standpoint.


Is this something that should go to the openldap-bugs mailing list?

OpenLDAP-bugs is really not a general purpose mailing list to just send reports to. You should file an ITS about problems first, and then follow-ups to the ITS (which will get recorded on the openldap-bugs list). This way the mail stays in the ITS system so it can be tracked, and you have a bug# in which everything is tracked.
