Re: ldap_delete_s() & referral (ITS#471)

>From looking at re_encode_request in libldap/request.c,
it doesn't interpret the ber encoded request correctly 
for a delete request.  It assumes that all requests are formatted
as: message_id, request identifier, Sequence, ...
The delete request does not have a sequence in it. It just has the
dn to be deleted.

Looking at the protocol, most requests have a sequence with the
exception of Delete, Unbind, and Abandon.
