Good hint. The same thing, see below. And problem solved !!!

In fact it doesn't crash. It terminates as this is the normal behavior of the helper when TLS
connection fails.

In fact the problem comes from outside the helper. TLS connection fails because openldap libraries
do check the validity of server certificate. Although it's a valid certificate, it fails... 8-(

The solution is to put this lines in /etc/openldap/ldap.conf :


Maybe it could be a good idea to force this from inside the helper as ldap.conf is a server wide
configuration and, for some people, not so easy to debug.

Thanks for the hint.
