Search problem with non-default attributes. (ITS#1993)

I am using openLDAP 2.0.25, JAVA SDK 1.3.1_02, ldapjdk_4.1.jar (or ldapjdk.jar)
at slackware linux.

When I try to search my Entries with

MY_FILTER= "(cn=*)";
MY_FILTER= "(cn=fatih)"; 
MY_FILTER= "(cn=fa*)";

I can take my entries easily 
but when I want to search with something different from default attributes, some
problems occur.

I determined these attributes in mySchema.schema in
"/usr/local/etc/openldap/schema" directory. All of them have type SYNTAX.
I have no problem with these attributes. I can write all of them to LDAP in a
normal way.

If I use filter including non-default attributes:

MY_FILTER= "(some-attr=*)";

I can find entries as I expect ( so, all entries comes :) ) but,

MY_FILTER= "(some-attr=fa*)";

with the filter, as above, I couldn't get any entries. On the other hand, I have
lots of them matches these type of filters. 

      LDAPSearchResults res = null;
//      String MY_FILTER= "(cn=*)";
//      String MY_FILTER= "(some-attr=*)";
      String MY_FILTER= "(some-attr=fa*)";
      LDAPSearchConstraints cons = myConn.getSearchConstraints();
        res = myConn.search(searchDN,LDAPConnection.SCOPE_SUB,MY_FILTER,null,false,cons);
        }catch(Exception e){
      System.out.println("res.hasMoreElements(): "+res.hasMoreElements());
//gives me "false"
      while (res.hasMoreElements()){
//      -------some code here-----

is this a bug? (I hope not. cos, I'll have to change thousands of codes as
generally happens :) )

thanks for all,
