Can ldapsearch(1) bind as this user?  If so, then your
program is likely flawed.  If not, maybe the server
provides some information which ldapsearch(1) can
report to you about what's wrong (and, if not, you'll
have to look on the server side from some hint as to
what's wrong).

Note: Users generally have DNs comprised of multiple RDNs
(as person objects are rarely placed at the top-level of
the name space).

You should direct questions about Domino to a list about Domino.

I trust ldapsearch(1) to print an LDIF representation of
the entry returned by the server.
