Deleting a DN with leading Space Character

	I have an entry in the directory that has a leading space as follows

dn: uid= username,dc=domain,dc=com

I cannot workout how to use ldapdelete to delete this entry, either by specifying the DN on the command line, or in a file.

I have a file called userdel.ldif which has the following

dn: uid= username,dc=domain,dc=com

But when I execute ldapdelete I get

Delete Result: Invalid DN syntax (34)
Additional info: invalid DN

I've tried "escaping" the space with a backslash, and a few other ideas (like using quotes all over the place), but I can't get rid
of it...

Any ideas?
