Thanks, this has been very educative for me in many ways. :-)

>Are you aware that Debian Squeeze is not a released version?
5.0 (Lenny) was released in February. 'Squeeze' is the current testing version.

Yes I know this. I have always used testing release of Debian (even my *nix skills are not so high level) and it has worked perfectly for my purposes. I use testing release because it simply takes too long to get new apps to the stable release (at least for my patience).
>Assuming you've restarted smokeping after upgrading libnet-ldap-perl,
I'm pretty short on further ideas. Sorry. Maybe downgrading to
libnet-ldap-perl 1:0.36-1 from Lenny would help.

This was the solution for my problem. No more LDAP_SYNC_INFO or other errors after I downgraded to that version you suggested. So seems that there is a bug at the newer version of libnet-ldap-perl. I have now put this package to held so it won't be updated automagically... I will try newer version of libnet-ldap-perl than 1:0.39-1 when such is available at the future.
