Yes.  Netscape is broken, at least the Linux versions 4.5 - 4.61 versions
I've tried.  They get an op status back from Slapd of -1 and that's where
the 0xfffffff stuff comes from (I also am reciting from memory).  The
Windows versions of Communicator do not do this.

I'd call it in but Netscape tech support has pissed me off a couple of times
too many in the last couple of months. :-(

Wrt the ACL stuff, a couple of message have gone by, just in the last day
that might help.
