Thanks for your reply.
Unfortunately, as I understand, there is no solution nowadays, until someone build a patch to add this configuration item.

To complete the thread, the ldap server is the classic Openldap.

nslcd performs a search after the BIND operation because some LDAP
servers do not seem to return correct errors on the BIND operation

This also came up recently:

So it may be a good idea to have an option for this (probably with the
added value of "trust-bind", an empty string or similar). Patches
welcome ;)
