You probably have to upgrade your OpenLDAP 2 libs. (That's what I

I think you have to define all the certificate-related stuff before
you do a LDAP over SSL connect by calling
ldap.initialize('ldaps://..') or before calling method start_tls_s()
of an existing LDAPObject instance.

I did not test it very well up to now.
