Another thing to check would be the version of OpenLDAP.  We've been
running an FC5 installation of dovecot with OpenLDAP 2.3.19 (upgraded
periodically as they come up) without a hitch.

And, yes, Timo is correct.  Postfix, Sendmail, Web, etc.. they all
connect to the LDAP backend as needed, and close the connection when
done with that particular process.
