[JDEV] Bug in jabberd-2.0beta2 ldap

On RedHat 9, jabberd-2.0b2 c2s process hangs and has to be killed with 
signal 9 when:
 1) LDAP authentication is used and
 2) a user is logged in to the jabberd server and
 3) the administarator shuts down jabberd.

Those 3 conditions result in a locked up c2s process. Attaching to this 
process with gdb and doing a backtrace gives this:

Reading symbols from /usr/lib/sasl/libplain.so...done.

I've originally thought it to be a bug in RedHat's stock tls libs, and 
reported it here:


See this bug for all the details I've collected.
