RE: back-ldap problem with Win2000 Active Directory
I replied to the wrong email before. Just to clarify, the patch I checked in
only to address the issue of mapping the error codes that back-ldap sends.
The other problem in this thread has to do with how the referral processing
handles referral URLs. I've looked thru libldap and note that the V2
processing code doesn't do complete processing of URLs. (Note comment on
841 of libldap/request.c...)
