Using Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) Security Provider with WLS 10.3 and SOA / BPM, the 2nd step of the Login process can be very slow for no apparent reason.  Thus, threads get stuck and users get prevented from sucessful login.

The thread dumps clearly indicate of possible delay in obtaining information from the LDAP as the threads are getting stuck (see example below) while communicating with the LDAP server.
