Fuzzy Matching in 2.0.4 appears not to work very well.

Approx searches for entries return no results

e.g. An exact match returns ok...

[root@mdte-pc openldap]# /usr/local/bin/ldapsearch -H "ldap://localhost:389"; -x

only "(sn~=holman)" seems to work.

Ive tried the --enable-phonetic configure option. It made no changes.
