Re: (ITS#3406) MRA filter evaluation needs normalization of tested value?

I've uploaded my suggested patch to 
ftp://ftp.openldap.org/incoming/test_mra_filter-2004-11-29.patch , 
please review.  Analogous correction needs to be applied later on for 
the case of no AttributeDescription specification in MRA filter.

I understand another solution to my specific problem would be to define 
a new monitorNamingContext with appropriate equality rule; this is being 
considered as well.  Anyway I this this is an issue in current MRA 
filter testing.
