Re: Fw: OpenLDAP Search bug?

I have set logging to show everything and the problem is that the candidate
set as you call it is the ENTIRE TREE!!!  It is ignoring my start DN and it
is searching below AND above the DN I pass, regardless of the search scope.
That is why it is taking 4-5 seconds --  it is traversing the entire LDAP
looking for a match for some odd reason.  It does have the sense not to
return matches from anywhere but below the startDN, but why is it wasting 5
seconds searching where it definitely won't find any match?  It should only
be looking below the start DN.
