This is really a 4.x bug, but I'm entering it in bugzilla in case we ever get
around to porting msglsrch.cpp into mozilla.

When we bind to an LDAP server, we're supposed to issue the bind request, and
then wait until the LDAP server returns LDAP_RES_BIND before beginning the
search operation. This is what we do when we bind anonymously to the server.
However, when we bind using LDAP authentication (DN and password), we move on to
the search state before the bind is done. This is a bug in
msg_SearchLdap::PreAuthBindResponse()

Summary: LDAP doesn't bind correctly when using authentication → [LDAP] LDAP doesn't bind correctly when using authentication
This seems unlikely to be compatible with the XPCOM wrapper approach for the
LDAP C SDK that we've got in use now.  Is there anything in particular that
porting the old code would buy us?  i.e. I'd be a little surprised if it
actually saved time, but I could well be wrong.  :-)
Marking INVALID; the current Mozilla code does not have this problem.
