RFC 2252 has a few comments regarding handling of the Root DSE,
but nothing about handling of the root naming context.  This is

Basically, one needs to special case a base DN "" search
such that it the search "locates" the base.  Then likely
the DN index subsystem would need to be adjusted.

There are some changes in HEAD which might help... they
need to be tested and any other issues raised, discussed,
and resolved.
