The OpenLDAP suite was recently modified to use NSS instead of OpenSSL as the SSL back end. This change led to collisions between libcurl and OpenLDAP on NSS initialization and shutdown. Consequently, applications that were using both, libcurl and OpenLDAP, failed to establish SSL connections. This update modifies libcurl to use the same NSS API as OpenLDAP, which prevents collisions from occurring. Applications using OpenLDAP and libcurl can now connect to the LDAP server over SSL as expected.
