The warning was misleading, and shouldn't have been placed in the 6.6.6
manual in the first place. There is nothing in Condor that specifically
dislikes LDAP. 

What we have seen is people using PAM modules that include conflicting
versions of OpenSSL, and trample on private data in the OpenSSL libraries,
which leads to crashes. The only place we've seen it is on Solaris 9, 
with a custom PAM module that happened to use LDAP, though it could
happen other places.
