After investigation, I found that the following line :

public class SearchIT extends AbstractLdapTestUnit
    public MultiThreadedMultiInvoker i = new MultiThreadedMultiInvoker(
MultiThreadedMultiInvoker.NOT_THREADSAFE );

cause the delay.

With this line, the SearchIT test runs in rouglhy 49 seconds, withhout
it, it runs in 13 seconds !

The reason is that the MultiThreadMultiInvoker introduce a 1 second sleep :

                while(counter.get() > 0)
                    Thread.sleep( 1000 );
(line 187).

We shoumd probably get rid of this @rules, unless we have very good
reason to use it...

AFAIR they were added to speed up tests, and now ironically they are slowing them down ;)
