I'd say this is more a problem with openldap. Do you know why tomcat
hangs to recreate the connection when openldap closes it? Do you have
anything in openldap configuration which could explain this.

We are at the moment migrating our old ldap server to openldap and
this could be a real issue for us.

Just a note, from what I see, Tomcat does not keep on trying. A first
