LDAP not working in Evolution?

I've added an LDAP server to the Contacts section of Evolution 2.0.2
running on FC3, but every attempt to access it results in:

"Error loading addressbook.

We were unable to open this addressbook.  
This either means you have entered an incorrect URI, 
or the LDAP server is unreachable."

However, my server is perfectly reachable using the ldapsearch 
command line tool, using the same parameters that I entered in Evolution.  The
server can be accessed anonymously, over the standard LDAP port (389).  

Anyone else seeing this issue?  I am accessing both Exchange account and 
an IMAP account using Evolution, if that makes a difference.  Exchange
lookup using the GAL seems to work.
