Re: (ITS#4991) pcache and rwm don't play well together


slightly related to the above ITS, I have found another issue. I am not sure 
though if this is a bug or if the behaviour is intended. I have a setup here 
were the pcache and rwm-overlay is used on top of back-ldap.
rwm is used to rewrite some Attributetypes unknown to the Schema of the local 
server to Attributetypes that are defined in the local server. As the 
attribute values from unknown attribute types cannot be normalized by the 
proxy, I am wondering if rwm should normalize them during the Mapping 
process? Otherwise the Values will endup un-normalized in the cache database, 
and I get incomplete results when requests are answered from the cache.

I have a patch ready for this but I was wondering if the normalization step is 
left out by intention and wanted to ask before commiting my patch.
