-W not working anymore
I haven't touched my ldap project for a while but finally got back to it today.
In the past I used -W to be prompted for a password but it's not working
anymore. Am I crazy or am I just doing something wrong. I was using 1.2.3 but
upgraded to 1.2.6 to make sure that wasn't the problem. The man page says -W
prompts for the password.
bash-2.01$ ldapsearch -W -D 'cn=root, o=Tivoli Systems' 'cn=Jason Bodnar'
