Joe, unfortunately without knowing your system(s) I can only give some 
general hints:

Make sure the very same Python interpreter is used for webware and for 
your test programs using python-ldap.

Make sure there is no mess with the LDAP libraries shipped with Solaris 
(which can't be used with python-ldap).

Use arguments trace_level and trace_file for ldap.initialize() or to let python-ldap write a detailed trace log with all the 
args passed to its API.

Is the server running at ldap:// is really 
reachable by the Solaris system?

Ciao, Michael.
