The code 18 means LDAP_INAPPROPRIATE_MATCHING; this means the attribute
you're filtering does not support equality matching or something
like that; it does not automatically imply a bug, it looks more like
an invalid syntax or matching rule problem.

Can you dig a bit further in what is causing the error?
