[Pdns-users] powerdns hangs when ldap backend is unavailable

I'm using powerdns 2.9.22 authoritative server with ldap backend (using 
openldap) on CentOS 5.5.

I've noticed that when for some reason ldap is not available for a while 
(e.g. due to restart or due to network outage), powerdns stops 
responding to queries (which is natural, initially) and it doesn't 
recover when ldap is available again (which is the problem). I have to 
manually restart pdns service to resume normal operation, whenever the 
ldap server has some operational interruption.

I would expect powerdns to resume normal operation as soon as ldap 
becomes available again.

Can anyone offer advice on the issue? Is it a bug or some configuration
