[GnuTLS][TLS init def ctx failed: -1]

Hi there,

I'm using:

slapd -V
@(#) $OpenLDAP: slapd 2.4.21 (Mar 30 2011 18:32:32) $

cat /etc/issue
Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS \n \l

This is Ubuntu so openldap has been compiled with GnuTLS

ldd /usr/sbin/slapd
    libgnutls.so.26 => /usr/lib/libgnutls.so.26 (0xb73a9000)

I've been following this guide https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/openldap-server.html and the section on TLS works perfectly if I follow the instructions to the letter.

That is, so long as the locations of olcTLSCACertificateFile, olcTLSCertificate and olcTLSCertificateKeyFile are /etc/ssl/certs, /etc/ssl/certs and /etc/ssl/private respectively, then slapd will start. For example:

olcTLSCACertificateFile: /etc/ssl/certs/cacert.pem
olcTLSCertificateFile: /etc/ssl/certs/ldap01_slapd_cert.pem
olcTLSCertificateKeyFile: /etc/ssl/private/ldap01_slapd_key.pem

However, if I change the location of any of these files slapd will fail to start with the error "TLS init def ctx failed: -1".

Should anyone ask, yes I've doubled checked for correct file permissions and searched for typos. The names of the files does not matter, just their location.

These appears to be bug to me.
