Maybe I'm wrong because your HTML e-mail formatting might have added
this. But it seems to me your file cwagon.ldif contains extra empty
lines. Note that an empty line is the separator between records in a
LDIF file. So your entry uid=cwagon,ou=People,dc=network,dc=com seems to
be empty since an empty line follows the line starting with dn:.
Cool, it wasn't blank lines but actual whitespace preceeding each
line.... I did not know about ldif files and how white space is treated.
It's in the spec for LDIF and mentioned many times in our docs and FAQ ;-)
