boot-process: starting network / dbus with ldap authentification

Feature state

openSUSE-11.3
Rejected Information

Description

I asked to file this bug report as feature request:
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=569953

After configuring LDAP authentification via yast the system needs about 20 
minutes to start the dbus-daemon on boot. I got a lot of ldap messages in
/var/log/messages like these:
Jan 12 12:01:44 w2 dbus-daemon: nss_ldap: failed to bind to LDAP server
ldaps://10.0.0.10: Can't contact LDAP server
Jan 12 12:01:44 w2 dbus-daemon: nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping
8 seconds)...
Of course, because network is started after dbus, dbus can't connect to the
ldap server, and waits several times until the timeout is reached.
Network has dbus as "required-start", so i can't change the startup order and
add $network to required-start in the dbus script.
My temporary solution is to replace the /etc/nsswitch.conf file with a one
without ldap access in /etc/init.d/boot.local and restoring the original one
after the network is up.
But this is not a clean solution, maybe an extra startup script can solve the problem.

Is this still a problem? Sorry that nobody reacted but this is in state UNCONFIRMED which normally gets ignored.
