Problems with startup on OpenLDAP

Hi all,

I searched Trac for this and asked on IRC, hoping someone here has  
some good info.  I've installed OpenLDAP and have it set up to run  
from the command line properly, but over the course of a few months,  
have found that my PostgreSQL starts properly via daemondo / launchd  
and slapd does not.

Daemondo is running for the slapd process, but slapd is nowhere to be  

So I tried to hunt down the answer to this paradox over the last  
several days with vigor and have come up empty.

Does anyone have a clue what I should start looking for?  The only  
difference I can smell in this is that OpenLDAP is starting from the  
command line as root and not starting via daemondo because it's trying  
to launch as user 'ldap'.    But I can't find any logs that would  
confirm this and thought I would ask here first.

Any thoughts appreciated.
