This is an actual simple bind request (128 == LDAP_AUTH_SIMPLE).
conn=10515 op=4 BIND anonymous mech=implicit ssf=0
When a bind is received, the connection's existing authorization (if any)
is cancelled. That log message generated by slapd when a bind is received
on a connection that has an existing binding, logging the reversion to
anonymous done at the beginning of the bind.
