Hi, thanks for looking at this.
but I don't see the behaviour you suggest...
bash-3.00$ ldapsearch -H ldap://XXXX -x -sone -b"XXXXX" -z1 -LLL "(|
Size limit exceeded (4)
In fact, I see that setting -z to N returns N entries then gives
I'd only tested searches that return entries under the proxied tree
(back-glued in to a local tree) though, not searches that may include
local entries. However, they seem to be behaving oddly too when a
sizelimit is set so I might open another thread for that. In any case, I
will try your patch to search.c first, as it may solve both problems.
