Not sure whether everything's ok with your script. On my LDAP server the 
following appears in the log:

Jun 23 14:47:03 nb2 slapd[10223]: conn=67 op=9999 SEARCH RESULT tag=101 
err=0 nentries=0 text=
Jun 23 14:47:03 nb2 slapd[10218]: conn=67 op=10000 SRCH 
base="dc=stroeder,dc=de" scope=2 filter="(?=undefined)"

The temporary file only contains the name, no attribute type for the search 

Anyway, if you run it with python -O you will see a big performance gain 
since all the trace logging stuff in LDAPObject._ldap_call() is completely 
deactivated (enclose in if __debug__).

Ciao, Michael.
