[Dovecot] LDAP auth_bind hangs and times out

	I am not sure that I understand you, here. Are you saying that I am
missing something from my configuration after the "filter=" line like a
pass_attrs listing fields to return?  I do not have one, as there are no
fields that I need returned.  The only thing that dovecot needs is the
DN of the match itself.

	According to http://wiki.dovecot.org/AuthDatabase/LDAP ,

"The pass_filter is used to find the LDAP entry, and the DN is taken
from the reply."

	Should I add a dummy pass_attrs entry?  What field is safe to grab?
E.g., I do not want to overwrite "user"...
