attribute tag returned via search different to value in schema
It would appear that the attribute tag returned when you dump a
schema is not always the same as the value returned by a search of
For example, if you list the attributes in the pilotPerson you will
find mobileTelephoneNumber but if you create an object that contains
objectclass pilotPerson and set a value for mobileTelephoneNumber and
then search for the object it is returned as "mobile". This is not
very helpful if you are trying to create an application that allows a
user to fill in these values.
Which is the "correct" value and why aren't they the same? Also what
do other people do about this "strangeness"?
