I actually haven't had any problems.  I'm not using it on a large
scale, but, then you aren't either.

You might turn logging for slapd (or whatever ldap server you're
using) and tail the log as you attempt to "do sutff."  It may be
worthwhile to put tcpdump on the wire and actually see what/how much
is going back and forth.
