And I completely failed to see the lack of "-", as you pointed out 
later...  And yes, line 6 == "-" should have been a hint.

I'm starting to see too many mistakes in "http://www.zytrax.com/books/ldap/";
to trust it now.  Or, for that matter, Howes/Smith/Good (1st Ed).

It's working now; thanks.

I was testing a simple "ldapdiff" utility which given "before" and "after" 
generates the required LDIF operations; I cannot use "ldifdiff.pl" because 
it requires Net::LDAP which is not a core module.

I hope to get permission to release it; a couple of people have expressed 
interest in it...
