Well - I have managed to get 2.4.23 working starting as root and using the
-g and -u options to actually run as user ldap. 2.4.24 was NOT able to do
that giving the error above. Since I have a working version now I am
pretty happy.

However the error that 2.4.24 gives seems bizarre. I can do more testing
on this if you want further info; perhaps slapd is unable to find the user

Use slapd -d -1 -u ldap -g ldap

on OpenLDAP 2.4.24, and see what it reports. It should certainly work with 2.4.24 as well as 2.4.23.
