JL> Here is something interesting:

JL> Doing a local export on a solaris machine, using openldap 2.0.7 and the slapcat utility I got (many like) this:

JL> nomeResponsavel:: QW50w7NuaW8gU2lsdmEgQ2FybmVpcm8gKGRyKQ==

the Problem here is... that "slapcat" and "slapadd" (OpenLDAP) handles
international chars in UTF-8 and BASE64 encoded.
... this means you have to write a Script, that recode the rest of every line
where the attribut is ending with "::" which somethink like
>recode /64..utf8..<
... befor this, you have to handle with, that long lines will be
broken by continue it on next line with a single "<space>" in front

see older Mailings for this Problem.

Mit freundlichen Grüssen
