Description

Under heavy load we get from time to time the following exceptions
(LDAP-SDK 4.0, Sun's JDK 1.2.2, Solaris 2.6 and Windows NT 4.0):

------------------------ on Windows NT --------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The exceptions can be easily reproduced with a program that creates
some (e.g. 16) threads and each threads run methods goes like this:

LDAPConnection 	ld = new LDAPConnection ();

for (int i = 1; i <= numRuns; i++) {

  try {
    ld.connect (host,port);
    ld.disconnect ();
  } catch (LDAPException e) { ...}

}

If we synchronize the connect and disconnect calls with the same
object:
  try {
    synchronized (obj) {
      ld.connect (host,port);
    }
    synchronized (obj) {
      ld.disconnect ();
    }
  } catch (LDAPException lde) { ...}

the problems don't occur. But the SDK is proposed to be threadsafe,
so the synchronization shouldn't be necessary.

The problem is caused by the lack of synchronization in deleteThreadConnEntry 
method. 

The fix has been cheked in 05-06-00.
