Thanks for the detailed report.  However, IMHO, automatic referral 
chasing Is Broken.  Clients should explicitly chase them, possibly 
providing some interactive means for rebinding.  This is what is 
currently done, for example, by slapd when using slapo-chain(5), and 
what should be done by proxy backends as well.
