For various reasons, the OpenLDAP backend for Samba4 is not functional
at this time. A fix for this particular error is in my git repo, in the
openldap-config branch, but this isn't enough, we have a serious issue
with the dereference control that I have not yet debugged.;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/openldap-config
(if someone wants to push those patches I'm fine with that, but we still
have a long way to go to resolve the other issues)
