We have no data how many installations uses check_ldap (with checking against 
ldapv2), but breaking default behavior is bad (and this may the reason 
upstream didn't do it).
Anyways ... when installing a check against a ldap server leads you to have a 
look into /etc/nagios-plugins/config/ldap.cfg (hopefully). If you see there 
also a check_ldap(s)3 check, I guess you will imagine, that there is a 
different to the 'normal' check and investigate further and then choose the 
correct check for your existing ldap server.
So I consider strongly to add additional checks for testst against ldapv3.

Unfortunatly we are to late to fix it in lenny, since today was announced to 
freeze the archive in general next week and migrating the package from 
unstable to testing takes 10 days (or more).

With kind regards, Jan.
