Thanks for your reply, Hallvard. Do I understand it correctly that I can re-use LDAP structures on which a bind has already been done? Do you know of any other stateful data I would have to look at?

My application creates LDAP structures (using ldap_init) and re-uses these structures whenever possible so that the least number of LDAP binds have to done. Is there anything I need to do after an LDAP operation has finished or maybe do I have to unbind at some point to make sure the LDAP structure remains in a valid state? I would be happy to receive any insight into this.
With LDAP *ld, call ldap_unbind(ld) when you are finished with ld, and not before. ldap_unbind() is actually the destructor for an LDAP*, in addition to sending an Unbind message.
