It's not only the content of the attributes in the LDAP server, also the
attribute names seem to be have problems as they may contain weird characters.
For example on HP's LDAP server there's an attribute named 'certificate;binary'
which of course is not a valid XML element name.

Your patch addresses attributes whose values are binary, while my patch takes
care of weird names. I created a combined patch that eliminates both problems.
Maybe a better fix would be to translate the LDAP attribute names in valid XML
element names, but since I don't care about the content anyway I just throw
them away.
