    Olivier, thanks for the PR, but QPID-8208 appears to be a typo (it relates to LDAP auth
provider error handling rather than this problem). Can you correct and we'll review?

> There is a weakness in Qpid exception handling when communication with external services
like LDAP. The Broker should take a more defensive approach and handle unexpected exceptions
thrown by underlying third-party API in addition to exceptions declared in API interfaces.
The unexpected exceptions thrown by underlying API should not affect the stability of the
> It was reported that on establishment of connection with LDAP using default context factory
{{com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory}} the creation of  {{InitialDirContext}} can end-up in
unexpected exception thrown from {{com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapClient}}. It looks like a defect
in {{com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapClient}}, but I could not find any existing open bug report raised
against JVM with similar behaviour. I think that Broker should catch unexpected exception,
log it and report authentication failure back to the client.
