It waits for the server to send a response message that concludes the
operation. If it does not return immediately, it is likely because the
server is not sending any, so it is unlikely the client library is to be
blamed. Feel free to abandon the operation as soon as you know that no
more results are coming, or make sure the server gently ends the
operation by sending the response message
How would I know that there are no more results coming?
I was thinking that you call ldap_result until it returns
NULL LDAPMessage. Is there some other way? May be the
last non-null LDAPMessage includes something to tell that
it is the last one?
