...and if you can't fix it at the client side, you can instead put

       allow bind_v2

in slapd.conf and restart the server.  This is not true LDAPv2 support:
The server accepts Bind with protocol version 2, but otherwise acts like
an LDAPv3 server.  Often that will work, but sometimes it will not -
e.g. if the client sends latin-1 characters instead of ASCII or UTF-8.
