[Xymon] LDAP test will not use nonstandard port

Hi all,

I'm running an LDAP test against an Oracle LDAP server from xymon using this configuration:

ldap://oud1.example.com:1389/DC=example,DC=com "ldaplogin=cn=admin:password"

That test is failing with the error that it cannot contact the server.  However, a command line search works:

ldapsearch -vh oud1.example.com:1389 -x -D "cn=admin" -w password -b "dc=example,dc=com" -s sub '(objectclass=*)'

When I look at the traffic with tcpdump it shows that Xymon is connecting to the standard port instead of the custom port specified in the test:

[root at retv6100 ~]# tcpdump host oud1
14:50:44.204908 IP xymon.example.com.53584 > oud1.example.com.ldap: S 3493937027:3493937027(0) win 5840 <mss 1460,sackOK,timestamp 2001931626 0,nop,wscale 7>
14:50:44.205311 IP oud1.example.com.ldap > xymon.example.com.53584: R 0:0(0) ack 3493937028 win 0

I saw someone else posted this question some time ago on the list but I couldn't find any resolution.
./xymonnet --version output:
xymonnet version 4.3.21
SSL library : OpenSSL 0.9.8e-rhel5 01 Jul 2008
LDAP library: OpenLDAP 20343
