No. LDAPv2 has alias support in the protocol. U-Mich never
implemented aliases. We did back in 1.1... but it's a bit
problematic. Even the 2.0 alias code, though more stable,
isn't feature complete (when "searching", it only supports
aliases which refer to leafs).

I suggest folk avoid aliases in 1.2 until fixed. Placing the
following ACL should stop aliases from being added to the
access to attr=aliasedObjectName
by * read
(but letting them read them if they preexist).
As far as fixing it... I'll place it appropriately on my very
long TODO list :-). I'll see if Will, the original author,
is more worrisome.
