OK - that was enough info for me to fix everything. I can now successfully do 
ldapadd -p 10389 -h lin -x -D "uid=admin,ou=system" -v -W -f $*

and my existing entries are imported perfectly.

I commented out credentials, and it works now with uid=admin,ou=system and a 
blank password. Also, this fixes the "cludge" as the while(true) loop in 
EnvMain has a good env with no credentials to create an InitialContext with - 
so no more errors every 20 seconds.
