No, that's not it -- I've had it working with a similar setup
before.   We have several different directories -- the suffixes


and I think the problem appeared after we split things up like
this.  The split is done so we can have each of our branches
be its own master and update the the others, except for the
top-level domain.  Access controls seem to be working fine
for eveything except the userPassword, which is the only
attribute with "* none" perms.  Our directories are lbdm,
and each has its own root dn and password specified.

What really bothers me is that I can't see the userPassword
if I bind *as that record*.  I know I am binding OK, as I
get everything else, and I have a little C program to check
binding as well.
