Don't know what basis Linux you use (or is it Solaris?), but try to
compile GQ for Gnome (compiling lets you add features Red Hat rpms don't
have, such as TLS and drag 'n drop), use it extensively and you'll learn
by trial and error. Specially with a 'tail -f' on the -d 256 slapd log

Is evolution able to do a strong bind to the ldap server by means of

Not at the moment - there's no strong authentication at all possible
with 1.0.8, not even TLS-based binds (that's supposed to be available on
later versions), but wishes have been expressed before.

The TLS support in the new evolution is independent of how you
authenticate - the only bind method available in the betas and in 1.2 is
still simple.  It shouldn't take too much work (now that the
frontend/backend have an idea of an "auth method") to get sasl binding
working, but that'll get pushed back until after 1.4.

The trouble is, that you can count the LDAP Evo users who subscribe to
this list on the badly mangled fingers of one hand. So, welcome, Dieter,
and thanks for adding a new voice to the few.

agreed, welcome Dieter :)
