The pseudo-root DN directive was a (partly broken) attempt to provide
some means to circumvent the need to accessing the remote server with a
valid identity instead of anonymously. Back-ldap, in 2.3, has a much
more powerful means to assert identities, the "idassert" feature. One
of its possible uses, which does not need the remote server to support
the proxyAuthz control, is to map selected identities on another
idenityt that is used to bind to the remote host. I would consider
upgrading to 2.3 since it is unlikely tht any new feature is added to 2.2.
