HI! When using (patched) python-ldap with OpenLDAP 2.0.x libs and I'm trying to access ldap://ldap.surfnet.nl/c=BE I get back the referral LDAP URL ldap://tor.dante.org.uk:1389??base That's almost ok. But the slash after hostport is missing. Is that intentional? IMHO it should be ldap://tor.dante.org.uk:1389/??base Ciao, Michael.
