Likely a case of garbage in / garbage out.  LDAP (one the wire)
has very specific character set requirements.  LDAPv2, which
OpenLDAP 1.2 implements, requires use of T.61.  LDAPv3 requires
use of UTF-8 encoded ISO 10646-1.

If you (or the clients you use) supply strings using other
character sets, your mileage will vary.
