(ITS#5402) Sets: Hyphens within attribute names considered as separate tokens

When using attribute names containing hyphens the Set code erroneously considers
the parts to either side of the hyphen as separate tokens.

For example a <by> clause like

    by set.exact="this/apple-keyword & user/apple-keyword" read

always yields an empty set. This means that on Apple Open Directory servers set
clauses canot be used with any Apple-supplied attribute as they all begin with

Pierangelo Masarati was so kind to verify that this bug is still present in the
latest release. Hopefully the fix is a simple diff that we can apply to the
older version shipping with Mac OS X Server, too. :-)
