This only happens if the DN contains non-USASCII characters like german
umlauts or accented characters.

Unfortunately the Netscape folks messed up generating the LDAP-URLs in
the address book. The LDAP-URL you mentioned above is URL-encoded but
Navigator itself seems to expect LDAP-URLs to be not encoded, like

  ldap://ldap/cn=User Name,o=Organization,c=US
