I'm not sure yet whether I'll have the smbldap-installer do this
bugfix automatically, or just warn the user and point her to
documentation of how to fix it.

Subject: The fix! It works....
Ok....my research turned up this....
I added the following line to /etc/ldap
that solves the slow slapd startup. It's a known bug in FC5 and
supposedly there is a line in the default ldap.conf file, but I can't find
<hang on> *restarting in order to test the messagebus timeout*
Eureka! It works! Adding that one line fixed the whole problem! Starts
up nice and fast now. I just checked the logs and all appears ok. I also
just checked the status of the services....all are running fine. I think
I got it....so to recap what I did....
I did NOT change the order of service startup....I left all as it was.
I added the line "nss_initgroups_ignoreusers
root,ldap,named,avahi,haldaemon" to /etc/ldap
That's it! I had to cull a lot of information from several sites to
deduce just exactly what should work....thank God for my ability to read
French (4 years of it in HS....and a Quebec border state)....I ran into a
lot of French sites and also comments on the IDEALX site.
Tomorrow I will try it out on my server at school and also try the yum
--disablerepo=core install perl-LDAP to address the yum bug that Eric
confirmed. Two packages were affected for me (perl-LDAP and it's
dependencies and openldap-server) I'll let you know, but for now I think
we have it licked. :-)
