Are you sure that's a good idea to fix?

It's not a valid LDAP filter, even though OpenLDAP accepts it in
many places.  That we accept it from users in tools is fair enough,
but I'm not sure it's a good idea to accept them on the server side.

Makes them one step closer to interoperability problems if they
reach other servers that do not slap on the necessary parens.
