No problem.  Note that if this is the cause of this issue, and, in any 
case, if you have some "range" attributes in your response, you still 
have an issue with those values.  It seems that, in the spirit of 
OpenLDAP software, we could be relatively liberal in accepting those 
values provided we are able to consolidate them in a single entry with 
no ranges.  Apparently, what the proxies could do is:

- whenever a range is obtained in a response
	- iteratively query the server again for the same entry,
	- requesting only that attribute for the next block of vals
	- incrementally build the set of values
	- return the consolidated entry

This MUST be configurable, and documented as a nasty, expensive and 
unnecessary hack.
