right. you'll have to bind to the returned ldap url (your master ldapserver,
i hope..) your self. you will _not_ be "redirected" automatically.. (when
automatically following referrals, LDAP performs an anonymous bind, you'll
have explicitly rebind to your master)

uhm.. :o) obviously again something wrong, i'd say..

you'll have to store the updatedn entry in both master and slave db. specify
'userpassword' attribute to authenticate.

that's not the way, right.

hmm, are not sure about ldapmodify, but i think, you'll have to check the
server's response, and relaunch ldapmodify with the correct host flag.
