netscape & unknown protocol error 0x02

We were experimenting with referall's and we noticed something strange :
if we referred to certain servers in our openldap server and we used
netscape as ldap client, we couldn't access our own ldapserver anymore
after having been referred. We always get an unknown protocol 0x02 error.
For an unknown reason the netscape client changed the way it makes the
request and the openldap server doesn't recognize the request anymore.

We already found out that it has something to do with something called
'dvd' a ldapv3 feature ??
Putting the line 
user_pref("ldap_2.servers.ua_1.vlvDisabled", true);
in the prefs.js file solves this.

Anyone has a clue or a solution ?
