I'm not fluent in BASE-64 so I have to guess:
May these Umlauts be encoded in ISO 8859-1? Note that the LDAP V3 specs say
that all characters have to be encoded in UTF-8. Maybe Syntax-checking in
openLDAP was still immature.
If this is the case you have to do a BASE-64 decoding of all BASE-64 encoded
strings (those with attribute:: Base-64-encoded-value), convert eberything
from ISO-8859-1 to UTF8 and reencode it with BASE-64 before writing it back
to your directory...
