Really 2.2.1? Note that this won't run with Python 2.5 on 64 bit
platforms. Make sure that you fully understand all the issues fixed
since then by examining file CHANGES thoroughly.

CHANGES of CVS HEAD can be found here:

IIRC in this case headers in local installation were messed up. The
original poster tried to build with OpenLDAP 2.3 libs but used the wrong
header file.

Why? OpenLDAP 2.2 is historic today. There's no support anymore for
either OpenLDAP 2.2- (OpenLDAP project team) and python-ldap 2.2- (me).

I disable downloads of older versions for very good reasons.

I could provide this old version on case-by-case basis if there's a
really good reason. But there's absolutely no support/warranty for it.
And I will refuse to answer any questions regarding this old version.
(This also applies to Debian packages of python-ldap which claims to be
python-ldap 2.3.1 but with a rather large patch set applied for backward
compability to OpenLDAP 2.1.)

Ciao, Michael.
