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

nss_initgroups_ignoreusers root,ldap,named,avahi,haldaemon

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
it....nonetheless...it works.  

<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.  :-)
