Unless someone who is experiencing this bug can identify a targetted fix for
the problem, I'm afraid that's the case.  A wholesale upgrade of libldap2
isn't an option for a stable release, and I don't think any of the LDAP
comaintainers have the time (or the environment, if it requires an AD realm)
to try to track this bug down.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
