Well, which versions of OpenLDAP and cyrus-sasl do you have on these systems?

RedHat's support for OpenLDAP is bad.
I'd recommend to upgrade cyrus-sasl and OpenLDAP libs.

Note that libldap_r is not available for OpenLDAP 2.0.x. Please make sure 
your setup.cfg reflects this.

2.0? Why such an old kernel?

What's the output of

# ldd /usr/lib/python2.0/site-packages/

Ciao, Michael.
