I use the following to prevent hanging at startup with LDAP.

nss_initgroups_ignoreusers root,ldap,bacula,named
timelimit 30
bind_timelimit 30
bind_policy soft

This is because some daemons start prior to the start of OpenLDAP

Obviously adding haldaemon, dbus, radvd, tomcat, etc. or other 'users'
for daemons that launch prior to your LDAP server application is useful
but those users would have to be listed in /etc/passwd|group to
significantly benefit.
