RE: referrals and one level searches (ITS#818)

Just to clarify.  Are you saying, in the case of a one-level search that:
  a) the client should chase referrals using one-level
  b) the client should chase referrals using base

Actually, the example provided in RFC 2251,, implies
the client should rewrite the scope of the URI as needed
when no explicit scope is provided.

That is, the example shows the server returning implicit
scope base references and says the client should chase using
scope subtree (instead of the implicit scope base).  I would
say the client should do likewise when the original scope is
one-level when the URIs returned have implicit scope base.
