Basically in Fedora 16 we turned off the ability for apps that did getpw()
from being able to connect to the ldap port, by default.  Turning that boolean
on, allows all domains that call getpw to connect to the ldap port.  We turned
this off because sssd now connects to ldap if it is setup and apps calling
getpw talk to sssd rather then ldap.  We have seen some daemons (samba) that
talk directly that we have broken with this change, but I believe the fixes
are going into Fedora now.
