Quite right. There is no search string defined, i.e. there are no
defined or interpreted objectclasses or attributes that Mozilla wants.

Your problem is with Mozilla. I.e., Ximian's Evolution works perfectly
with all sorts of Openldap and evolutionperson.schema.

Install mozillaperson.schema,  or whatever it is. This is where
everything goes to hell, since there is no standard definition for what
clients want, and mozillaperson.schema clashes with
evolutionperson.schema and also with officeperson.schema (MS Outlook,
etc). And there's no standard definition for what clients may do, or how
they do it.

A partial solution has been given by Adam Williams of this list, forget
what it is - sorry, Adam :( (myhybridperson?)
