I think these are separate problems.

Here's my explanation of this problem on Darwin:

Some time ago, setsid() was called only if (pty_flag).  Alan's commit
a13eaddce2ddbe3ba0b7f4c81715bc0fcdba99f6 (fixes bug 26397) changes
vfork() to fork() for this case - so we never call setsid() after
vfork().  Then Paul's commit 5c91ca8f30098cb2593ca375daa82d25aef03ad7
(fixes bug 30762) changes setsid() to be invoked always.  So it again
became possible that we call setsid() after vfork(), and this I believe
is the root case of the current problem.

My patch tries to fix that.  I don't think it matters here whether we
call ldapsearch with correct value of p-c-t or not, it just the case
which was missed.  And vfork() should perform better than fork(), so it
looks like an improvement.
