The problem with 1.7.34 is that it opens an LDAP connection and requests
passwd-entry related account information for your account and all your
groups in your user token.  The later, fetching the info for all your
groups, is rather useless.  I think that's the major problem.  So I'd
think the best way forward is to update to the 1.7.35-0.1 test release
and report further from there.
