It seems you're running on a 64-bit platform. I did never test
python-ldap on such a system. Which version of python-ldap is it? Did
you compile it yourself? Which versions of OpenLDAP libs are used?

Hmm, isn't this quite old? I'd guess old versions of python-ldap and
OpenLDAP are shipped with this release.

Ciao, Michael.
