I have a wrapper manager code on top of openldap stack(ver.2.4.11), there manager code is responsible for creating the ldap connecting to the LDAP servers by using the standard ldap API().

u32_t rc=ldap_sasl_bind(ld, loginDN, LDAP_SASL_SIMPLE, &cred, NULL, NULL, &msgid); //asynchronous bind

 if (rc != LDAP_SUCCESS )
  ldapErrorLog(":connect: LDAP Bind send Failed:%s \n ", ldap_err2string(rc));
  ldap_unbind_ext_s(ld, NULL,NULL);
  m_connInitialized = false;


by using this wrapper code I am creating many ldap links ,most of time this is working fine some times when the ldap_sasl_bind() returns -1 (can't contact server) or unknown error the code is crashing in ldap_unbind_ext_s. can anyone help out.

the log and gdb trace are pasted below
