Yes I'm really sure. I just pushed the up arrow key and changed 
the letter C to D.

I do not know either. If I delete all the 'C' entries in the ldif file and I 
recreate the data-base with "ldif2ldbm -i myfile.ldif"  then I get a 
result with my 'D' query (170 matches).

I have just noticed something important:

If I do ldapsearch -v -u -b 'ou=abook,dc=mydomain' '(sn=*)'

This returns 197 matches though the data-base contains 1584 

The last entry returned is also the last that ldapsearch will ever 
search, i.e. it will not search beyond that limit.

If I try to search the next entry just after the last one returned by 
the query '(sn=*)', i.e. entry number 198 the result I have is 0 
entries again with this same message

ldap_init( <default>, 0 )
filter pattern: (sn=G*)
returning: ALL
filter is: ((sn=G*))
0 matches

I looks like ldapsearch will NOT search beyond the limit of the first 
200 entries or so.

I would be glad if someone could give any hint.
