Probably the LDAP servers limits the time span your LDAP connection is
valid and drops the connection. You have to deal with that in your application.

ldap.ldapobject.ReconnectLDAPObject is probably what you're looking for.
Note that I screwed up a module import in ReconnectLDAPObject in current
2.0.0pre17. Use upcoming 2.0.0pre18 instead.

Ciao, Michael.
