As I recall, OpenLDAP is configured by default to limit search filters to at least 3 significant characters.

You might want to have a look at this ITS

A version of this feature is now in OpenLDAP 2.3.

Filtering now works better for filters using longer subinitial and subfinal filter strings as well.

The slapd.conf(5) manpage in OpenLDAP 2.3 has of course been updated to describe the new substring index configuration options.

Outstanding. Thanks Howard and Gertjan.

One last (semi-obligatory) note - these features are also available in Symas CDS 2 (which is based on OpenLDAP 2.2, plus many enhancements like this and others.)
