ldapsearch using dn= as the filter returns no results.


After Googling this for about an hour, I decided to post here. If I issue the following command:

$> ldapsearch -x -LLL "uid=droy"

I get:
dn: uid=droy,ou=people,dc=eclipse,dc=org
cn: Denis Roy

However, if I try a search using my DN, I can never get a result:
ldapsearch -x -LLL "dn=uid=droy,ou=people,dc=eclipse,dc=org"

I'm writing a Perl application where I have the user's DN, and need their mail address. Unfortunately, perl's ldap->search using the DN as a filter behaves the same way.

Any help or pointers on how to search for entries based on the DN would be appreciated!
