Life is full of surprises, Ace! But that is, in fact, exactly what
happens. Try it for yourself.

That's what happens. Look at the logic of the above, it makes sense.

Furthermore, start using GQ and you'll see the logic in graphical tree

As I said, Billy and I tried it first, with both GQ and ldapsearch
(ldapmodify was not necessary).

This last I can confirm. I have no user "cn=Billy Da Kat", where did you
get that one from? I *do* have a user
cn=Billy,ou=people,ou=groups,dc=billy,dc=demon,dc=nl, and he can't touch
what Torgeir has in his tree. Neither can I. But Torgeir can.
