When I last looked at it with Günter, we determined that this was in the
gnutls library, where we are required to generate a DH key pair for
LDAPS support.  The operation is declared as 'expected to take a long
time' in the manpage. 

What we need to figure out is:  is the way we call and use gnutls
correct, is this a bug in gnutls, or is there a different best practice
we should follow.
