(ITS#6910) Ldap fails to start when duplicate entries are in /etc/hosts

Submission from: (NULL) (

If an IP address entry for a host appears more than once in /etc/hosts, slapd
fails to start, complaining the port is already in use.

Failed to start slapd.  Attempting debug start to determine error.
daemon: listen(ldap://zre-ldap002.eng.vmware.com:389, 5) failed errno=98
(Address already in use)

Sample /etc/hosts:
zimbra@zre-ldap002:~$ cat /etc/hosts       localhost   zre-ldap002.eng.vmware.com      zre-ldap002   zre-ldap002.eng.vmware.com      zre-ldap002

It appears that we don't validate whether or not we've already tried to start up
on a given interface...
