Referral results sent with an empty scope and filter


I have added a 'referral' entry (RFC3296) in my directory but,
apparently, slapd doesn't return exactly the same thing as I put in.
Even though I didn't specify a scope or a filter, the reply URL
contains '??' at the end, i.e. an empty scope and filter.

For example, the LDIF contains :

 ref: ldap://foo.bar/dc=foo,foo=bar

but is returned as :


Why isn't the referral entry sent back verbatim ? Is it "RFC-compliant" ?
I ask this because, at the moment, Mozilla refuses to follow referral
URLs which contain a scope of a filter.
