I tested ldapsearch after setting the maximum number of ptys to the
number of currently-busy ptys:

cat /proc/sys/kernel/pty/nr > /proc/sys/kernel/pty/max

It does get run in pipe mode silently (i.e., no warning messages are
generated), and as we already confirmed, ldapsearch happens to still
work when run in pipe mode.

OK, I guess file another bug if there's another issue preventing
eudc-expand-inline from working on emacs-26.

Thanks,
