 From the documentation, you'd expect the first 'by users read'
clause above to apply and block processing before the 'access to *'
rule applies.  This is the behavior I expected from the documen-
tation.  And it's the behavior that actually makes sense to me -
although I freely admit that I'm new to OpenLDAP.
