I guess this is a relevant section (the only occurrences of "connection" in the spec):

  "contextID values have no validity outside 
   the connection and query with which they were received. A client MUST 
   NOT submit a contextID which it received from a different connection, 
   a different query, or a different server."

which does partly answer my question about the VLV request, but says nothing about any related sort operation.

Always possible, but I would expect that ldapsearch terminating would cause the server to drop the connection and clean up any sort request associated with a vlv request on that connection. I'll do some more investigation.
