We reuse connections, in other words, we don't connect/disconnect for
each search.
Thus, a connection is used for different searches which require the
resulting strings to have different formats.

Resetting the converters with ldap_set_option() between the calls is
fine for me.

For me yes, but I'm pretty new to OpenLDAP.
