  I have tested the modifications and it looks good: the referal is
still buggy but slapd doesn't crash... instead, the ldap client (I used
ldapsearch) receives a search result with resultCode 52 telling that
slapd cannot follow the referal "ldap://thehost.com??base";.
  With this code, it will be easier to modify liblad/request.c: I
already found the comments about using the url parser but it would have
been hard to implement with slapd crashing everytime there would have
been something wrong. I'll try to fix the referal problem and keep you
informed (openldap-devel should be a better mailing-list for this kind
of message).

  Thanks a lot.
