According to "Netscape LDAP Deployment Guide, chapter 6":
"A commonmistake is to assume that you search your directory
based on the attributtes used in the distinguished name.  This
is not true.  The disinguished name is only a unique 
indentifier for the directory entry, and you cannot search
against it. ... Thus, if yoout dn contains the value
cn=babs jensen, then you can cannot search against that
attribute-data pair unless you have defined cn: babs jensen
in directory entry"
