Re: (ITS#4647) ldapsearch: substitution error when using file and %s

I've committed a patch to ldapsearch so that it will return
a "bad filter pattern" error when bad filter patterns are
provided.  I've also updated the man page that any
% character intended to be expressed in the filter must
be escaped (using RFC 4515 mechanism) in the pattern to
avoid a bad filter pattern error.
