I don't quite understand what you are saying here.

In LDAP, a continuation line is distinguished by a single space at
the start of the line; it gets appended to the previous line, deleting
both the previous line's newline and the next line's space.  It has
nothing to do with whether the line contains a ":" or not.

For example, the sequence:


is equivalent to 123, and:


is the same as 1 2 3.

Are you saying that the Perl one-liner "perl -p -0040 -e 's/\n //'"
does not work?  I assure you it does.  Did you actually try it?
