Even the very broken Windows 2000 returned UTF-8. I guess there's something in
the client which messes up the returned data. I assume that you access the AD
LDAP port directly and not via a possibly misconfigured LDAP proxy.

I assume you're using solely the OpenLDAP client libs and not the server.
