It *is* already disabled, as we enfore the use of TLS.

I already said that two times. Asking a third time will not bring you
any more comfort.

At this point, I would suggest you check the code by yourself, and if
you find some place where you think that SSL v3 can still be used, then
fill a JIRA, and we will be very pleased to apply a patch in trunk. Also
keep in mind that ApacheDS 1.0 is not anymore maintained, so I strongly
suggest you either switch to ApacheDS 2.0, or you are totally on your own.
