Your problem sounds quite interesting; unfortunately your report is
absolutely vague, since you don't specify the type and the version of the
various pieces of software  you're using: what client (ok, ldapmodify),
what client version, what server (ok, you made it; did you write the BER
encoding/decoding, or did you recycle those from OpenLDAP's liblber?  In
case, what version?), what OS (you say Windows and Unix, it's like saying
Fiat and Renault) what OS version.

Can you be more precise?
