OpenLDAP may be questionable & strange, I'm not going to debate it.  But I
pointed you to a RFC that clearly states what's the correct procedure to
perform an operation.  You're pointing me to the man page of a client that
eventually got fixed across releases.  If a client can't perform an
operation dictated by an RFC, and pretends to do it another way, I'd call
that "questionable & strange".
