LDAP URL in ref attribute (ITS#1927)

I'm playing with knowledge references. I noticed that if a LDAP URL in the
attribute ref contains a space character in the DN the LDAP URL is not correctly
evaluated and therefore OpenLDAP 2 server does not return the whole LDAP URL.
Using the same LDAP URL with space character URL-encoded like %20 works.

(RFC2255 is not really clear on when to use URL-encoded strings. One could
consider RFC2255 to be seriously flawed in this regard.)
