Earlier this year I tried and failed to get this error to propagate down
the caller stack into a 'no reply' error.  It would be really good if,
when my LDAP server shits itself, Heimdal just 'played dead' rather than
telling my users they don't exist.  If they are lucky, they might then
talk to an Heimdal/LDAP server which is actually up.
