i could imagine (though i'm not sure) that if you would change one
of the middle RDN's of an entry, you would leave it's children as
orphans. This might be disallowed by the ldap server itself, instead
of being due to Net::LDAP.

I think you need to build the second subtree with the entries from
the first, and remove the first subtree later.
