Re: Netscape SDK bug(?)

This issue is a matter of interpretation of the specification,

   Some attributes, termed operational attributes, are used by servers
   for administering the directory system itself.  They are not returned
   in search results unless explicitly requested by name.

and 4.5.1:
     servers will not return operational attributes, such
     as objectClasses or attributeTypes, unless they are listed by name,
     since there may be extremely large number of values for certain
     operational attributes.

Hence, the OpenLDAP server only provides operational attributes
when requested by the client.
