I guess I can simply replace the ensure_open_passwd() function in
1.3.5 by than one, right? Please confirm, patch will be in next
upload then.

Arthur suggested a different fix: I am not sure about what effect
a setpwent() call would have on nslcd and if it would fix the issue of
the client process requesting the whole database.

An alternative is to do setpwent()/getpwent()/setpwent() which should abort the started search without wasting too much time trying to search LDAP entries in our environment.

...and this is exactly what has been implemented in upstream. ;-)
