Back-ldap seems to work as expected if you set

chase-referrals         yes
rebind-as-user          yes
idassert-bind   bindmethod=simple

and binddn <dn> with credentials <cred> exists on both the remote server
and the one pointed to by the referral.

With back-meta, it should work with the same parameters; however, I've
checked and the specific code used to bind during searches does not set
the rebind procedure correctly.  I've fixed this in HEAD, please test.

Thanks, p.
