I had the same issue with 1.0.1
I have 2 radius servers which each use 2 postgresql database backends.
When I stopped one server for maintenance, the radiusd process on the other
server suddenly went to constantly using 100% CPU.
When starting radiusd while 1 database is already down, this doesn't happen.

Looks to me that it's not LDAP or Postgresql related :)
