It is definitely much faster in term of pulling up folders that have 
hundreds of results in them.  I don't see that the client interaction with 
the LDAP server and the feeding back of results to the master slamd is any 
faster. ;)  The instability issues with the clients that I've encountered 
from the start seem to remain, as well.  Periodically one will just lock 
up, and I'll have to restart an optimization job over, which can cost me 
many hours of time. :/
