Here should be a line saying "result: <returned fields>". Since there
isn't, Dovecot never appears to receive the reply. You could verify this
by adding to src/auth/db-ldap.c ldap_input() around line 372:

		msgid = ldap_msgid(res);
// added line:
		i_info("LDAP: Received reply %d", msgid);

msgid might be the same as this tag:

> Apr  3 08:13:30 fourier slapd[14039]: conn=7 op=3 SEARCH RESULT tag=101

But I'm not sure. If you anyway receive a reply after the "bind search",
there's something wrong in Dovecot's error handling.
