Yes, I initially missed that point, but later we clarified it, and I
think he restored them.  In fact, he's now getting a different error.
It seems that he's facing with the Well Known Migrating From
SunOne/iPlanet/whatever to OpenLDAP (WKMFSO, (C)) problem.  I can tell
my awk scripts for this purpose are becoming way and way refined, and
I'm happy about that because it means more and more people are migrating ;).
