Howard's suggestion about searching the subschemaSubentry
DN was what I was going to say as well.

Strange.  I seem to remember some servers (not sure which ones)
having a default search suffix to use if the client didn't give
one.  I can't remember where I ran into this though.  Could be
the case you're seeing with the IPsswitch server.

But based on your comments below I would work on defining
the DomainName attribute on the ldap proxy before I worried
about much more.
