I have the following entry in an ldbm:

dn: uncgfullname="Aaroe,Christian D. (Mr.)", dc=michael, dc=uncg, dc=edu
objectclass: uncgemp
uncgfullname: Aaroe,Christian D. (Mr.)
uncgdep: Building & Trades
uncgoffice: Sink Building
uncgpermanentaddress: 312 Jackson Street Greensboro NC 27403
uncgofficephone: (336) 334-3365
uncgpermanentphone: (336) 272-3101
uncgemail: AAROE@UNCG.EDU

I perform the following search:

wlestes 2-8 ~ $ ldapsearch '(uncgfullname=*a*)'

And get the following answer:

version: 2

# filter: (uncgfullname=*a*)
# requesting: ALL

# search result
search: 2
result: 0 Success

# numResponses: 1

What's going on?
