(not) handling multiple wildcard chars?

Hello there,

Whenever a client sends multiple wildcard chars at the end of a search string
(e.g.: "cn=gary**") the server shows an undefined error in the logs:

SRCH base="ou=people,o=apple computer" scope=2 filter="(?=undefined)" 
SEARCH RESULT tag=101 err=0 nentries=0 text= 

and nothing is returned nor is there an error.

It seems to me that the server should either strip the redundant * chars OR
return some sort of error to the client.

Can anyone comment/explain this behavior?
