Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.  I looked at rfc2255 and
figured out the problem with my URLs.

And for the sake of the readers of the archives of this list, the
problem was that I was missing a question mark delimiter for the
attributes being requested by the search.  In the case of a dyngroup one
doesn't want any attributes returned (just the matching DNs to populate
the member attribute of my dyngroup); but you still need the delimiter
even if the field being delimited is empty.

So my original URL didn't work:


Here's fixed version of the URL (note the extra question mark):


And if I were trying to retrieve a specific attribute ("cn", for
instance) it would be:


My dyngroups are working now.

Thanks again,
