That makes sense, and solves my problem, thanks.

I apologize if I was off-topic, but I believed I was on-topic by reading
the description from OpenLDAP's page:

"This mailing list is for technical discussions of use topics specific to
OpenLDAP Software (as well as JLDAP and JDBC-LDAP). All users of OpenLDAP
Software should subscribe to this list. This list can have a high volume
of messages."

Yes, but technically your question is about the behavior of LDAP in general, and not something specific to OpenLDAP. ;) I.e, your question applies to all directory servers, not just how OpenLDAP works. ;)
